The Cooper’s Croze is a whiskey that showcases the diversity of barrels on the grounds of our distillery in Midleton. A maturation process that includes virgin American oak barrels, seasoned bourbon barrels and Iberian sherry casks delivers a whiskey with vanilla sweetness, rich fruit flavours and a fine balance of floral and spice notes. Oak’s influence on a whiskey’s character can’t be understated, and The Cooper’s Croze is a perfect illustration of this relationship. You can take whiskey out of wood but you can never take the wood out of whiskey.
Nose: A subtle flower petal-perfume develops into rich ripe fruits, while some charred oak and cedar wood bring balance and complexity – a seamless infusion of American and Spanish oak character.
Taste: The initial impression is from the sweet vanilla of the American ex-bourbon barrels. This brings added depth to the rich fruits typical of the ex-oloroso sherry butts. A pleasant touch of hazelnut and toasted wood complement the pot still spices. The finish is pleasantly long, with vanilla sweetness slowly fading to barley grains with a touch of oak char.
