Nose: Rich and refined, there's hazelnut buttercream, flamed orange peel and traditionally Sherry notes of raisins, dates and figs initially. A hint of toasted oak and star anise linger underneath.
Palate: Milky coffee and dark chocolate lead with plenty of juicy citrus, dark fruits and gingerbread.
Finish: Sweet stewed pineapple lingers alongside a touch of vanilla.
Cooper's Select was named in tribute to the vital job coopers do, and the influence that wood has on a whiskey. Pearse Lyons was especially appreciative of the role of a cooper as his family on his mother’s side, the Dunnes, were a family of Coopers for generations. One of them, Margaret Dunne, was actually the first female cooper in Ireland!
