Louise travelled from Kentucky to Tennessee and then on to New York in search of American Craft Bourbon casks. All Bourbon casks are charred to open up the wood for greater flavour. Bourbon’s very big, bold, intense character leaves plenty of flavour in the barrel for a second fill.
This delicate and sweet expression is full of citrus and vanilla notes with nutmeg clove and honey. Perfect with seafood, by itself, or as an after dinner treat with chocolate this versatile whiskey is a true taste of Cooraclare.
He was a revenue man in the early 1900s, who coincidentally was responsible for inspecting casks at Kilrush dock. He was known locally as “The Gauger Hanson.” Sometimes a name and a story are just too serendipitous to ignore—and so The Hanson was christened after another old neighbour.
Palate: A lively start with bright, green apples, toasted coconut continuing from the nose. The influence of fresh oak is clear; with rye grass developing to lemon grass.
The original Gauger Hanson probably cycled past this place 100 years ago on his way back to Kilrush. He never imagining he would one day be immortalised here in liquid form. Slainte.
Rich and deep notes of vanilla fudge and toasted coconut speak of the bourbon influence. Top notes of griddled pineapple and lime give a fresh zing.
