28 Year Old Single Pot Still Whisky

A 28-year-old whiskey is a product of time and transformation. With each passing year, it gains depth, evolving into a spirit with a balanced character. Such extensive maturation results in a whiskey where all its components complement each other, showcasing what time, care, and knowledge can craft.

The story of Single Pot Still whiskey is intertwined with Ireland's rich distilling heritage. This particular style of 28-year-old whiskey has its origins in Ireland's past, especially during the 19th century. Faced with British taxes on malted barley, Irish distillers came up with a solution: mix unmalted barley with the malted kind. This not only countered the tax issue but also gave birth to a whiskey known for its distinctive spicy taste.

Crafted from both types of barley, this whiskey is distilled in copper pot stills, hence its name. The distillation, often done two or three times, gives the 28-year-old spirit its powerful and rounded profile. The unmalted barley introduces a spicy kick, while the malted variant brings a hint of sweetness to the blend.

Sampling a 28-year-old Single Pot Still whiskey, one can expect a medley of tastes. From fruity notes to a nutty aftertaste and its characteristic spiciness, it's a journey for the palate. As it rests in oak casks, often a blend of American and European wood, it takes on additional flavours, such as vanilla or deeper tones of dried fruits and chocolate.

Brands like Redbreast, Green Spot, and Powers have championed this whiskey style, ensuring that the tradition of Single Pot Still is alive and well today. Their dedication to preserving and promoting this method is noteworthy. Every sip of a 28-year-old Single Pot Still whiskey takes one back to Ireland's past, celebrating its innovation and timeless spirit.
