In 1966 a female Texas architect Lavoné Dickensheets Andrews and her husband Mark began restoring a rundown castle once built to repel Norman invaders. While she worked on the restoration, Mr. Andrews amassed a collection of vats of single malt Irish Whiskies distilled by the B. Daly distillery in Tullamore. For years, Andrews would release dated whiskies. His son Mark is now in charge of the Knappogue Castle brand which recently began selling 12 year old Irish. Very light color; clean aroma with almost a green leafy note. Smooth, round, easy drinking whiskey. Nice warmth and a sweet finish.
