A sexton is an officer of a church charged with the maintenance of its building and the graveyard – perfect to be launching our October whiskey of the month just in time for Halloween.
The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey is truly in its element after dark. Not only is the bottle a sexy black hexagonal shape, but also everything about this whiskey screams dark and flavoursome. Tasting notes are as follows:
Colour: Beautiful russet – the reddish colour probably coming from the cask
Nose: Marshmallow with dark chocolates and caramel
Palate: Sweet dark fruits followed by prunes and apricots
Water: Just add a little bit and you can definitely taste the sherry cask
Finish: Long woody finish with dark honeycomb sweetness coming through
This Irish whiskey is 100% malted barley, which means there are no grains and no unmalted barley. And although there is no age statement, it is said to be aged for a minimum of 4 years before bottling, and we get a wonderful dark fruit character to go along with that sweet malty flavour. So cheers to Halloween!
