The name Fercullen Falls refers to the highest waterfall (121 meters) in Ireland, which is located not far away from the distillery.
Nose: Cinnamon with fresh fruit from the orchard with brown sugar, toffee and warm bread. The herbs linger nicely.
Taste:Rrich, soft and sweet at the same time with vanilla icing, and malt spice and peppery cloves.
Finish: warming with the spices with a firm mouthfeel that also explores the corners of the tongue.
Delicious to drink pure, but also very suitable as a basis for your favorite cocktail.
