Following in the footsteps of the multi-award-winning Silkie Irish Whiskey, Dark Silkie is the latest addition to the Sliabh Liag Distillers arsenal. Inspired the strong tradition of storytelling prevalent in Donegal society, Dark Silkie takes its name from the mythical Silkies of the Donegal Coast, seal-like shape-shifting who shed their skin, often taking the shape of beautiful sea-maidens.
Dark Silkie contains a core of triple distilled peated single malt whiskey which has been matured in sherry casks. it is also blended with a double distilled single malt which has been matured in bourbon barrels along with soft grain whiskey which has been finished in virgin oak casks.
The result: a dram that is soft and subtle with notes of caramel sweetness, oak, chocolate with a warming smokey spice.
