Portmagee 9 is Ireland’s only 9 Year Old Whiskey.

The Portmagee 9 Blend was created by Irish Whiskey Blogger Stuart McNamara who is a member of the Portmagee Whiskey Team based in Portmagee, Co. Kerry, Ireland. This unique blend was created from a thirteen year old single malt and a nine year old single grain sourced from GND which were cask married in Barbados Rum Casks from three to six months, before being bottled for release at just 333 individually numbered bottles per cask.

Tasting Notes – Portmagee 9 Barbados Cask Finished Irish Whiskey.

Nose: Gentle, malty nose with warm apple sponge, coconut, toasted-oak vanilla and toffee apple.

Taste: Creamy butter-toffee mouth feel yields to a surge of single malt mid-tongue with notes of rich Irish fruit cake and dark chocolate.

Finish: Warm malt lingers and slowly fades to a smooth and throat soothing Barbados Rum Finish.

This unique Portmagee 9 blend was created from a thirteen year old single malt and a nine year old single grain sourced from GND. These two aged whiskeys were then cask married in Barbados Rum Casks from three to six months, before being bottled for release at just 333 individually numbered bottles per cask.

Each Barbados Rum Cask is used for just twice before being retired. There is no added colouring and no chill filtering (despite being bottled at 40 % ABV) reflecting Portmagee’s passion for sustainability and transparancy.For further information on the creation of Portmagee Whiskey, see Portmagee 9 – The Story.

The  Portmagee team have recently planted several thousand native Irish Woodland trees on the site where their new distillery will be built so that one day, Portmagee Whiskey will be matured in Portmagee Oak. Watch James Murphy in this video made for Irish Supermarket Chain Super Valu after Portmagee Whiskey graduatedfrom the Super Valu Food Academy for Food and Drink Innovation in Ireland.

These are some of the last remaining bottles from Cask 3 which have been held back by Portmagee’s German distributer for sale on Amazon.De. The Portmagee 9 Whiskey releases are eagerly awaited by collectors all over Europe. This accounts for the selling price which greatly exceeds the normal RRP in Ireland of just for these highly prized bottles.
