Velvet Cap Irish Whiskey

In Stock

Velvet Cap Irish whiskey is a small batch blend of malt and grain whiskeys sourced from the finest distilleries. After blending, the whiskey rests in a selection of bourbon, port and stouted rye casks to let the flavour marry. 

The Velvet Cap brand has been revived by Blackwater Distillery in County Waterford. Velvet caps were traditionally worn by jockeys in point-to-point racing, dating from 1752. Riders raced over fence and ditch between two churches - from one steeple to another, hence the term 'steeplechase'.

Blended and bottled at 40% ABV by Blackwater Distillery.

Tasting Notes

NoseCandied banana, dark stone fruit and a hint of honey. Almond biscuit and cacao notes.
PalateLayered but youthful. A firm foundation of malt sets the stage with well-balanced vanilla, plum with caramalised agave playing support.
FinishFruity esters from the tropics brightly cross the palate, leading the way for a pleasantly lingering blend of sunrise cereal and a rich, after-dinner treat.
