The name of one of Ireland's great distilling families lives again...Oaky tones and complexity of flavour.
The Locke's Single Malt was the pioneer brand for Cooley as it was the first brand launched in 1992. On the 17th of July that year the first mature cask of Locke's Single Malt was tapped by the Grand-daughter of the last John Locke. The initial bottling was a limited edition of 5,000 individually numbered bottles presented in a wooden box. In 1998 the brand was officially launched and went on general release to complete Cooley's malt range.
This fine whiskey is distilled in Cooley in traditional pot stills and uses only the finest malted barley and the purest Irish spring water. Locke's Single Malt has a distinctive character and flavour, fully developed through gentle maturation in oak casks held in the 200 year old warehouses in Kilbeggan in heart of Ireland.
However it wasn't until 2000 that Cooley launched its first aged whiskey, Locke's 8 Year Old Single Malt. Its unique quality and flavour was fully rewarded when it won a Gold medal in the 2001 International Wine and Spirits Competition.
Nose: Full flavoured nose bulging with big fruit-barley character. Oaky traces from the oldest of Cooley's malts. Taste: The barley is big and succulent. There is a copper-tanginess followed by a dry fruity flavour. Finish: The malt is nothing short of enormous & with a tanginess character. The minimum 8 year old oak passes leaving a vanilla essence and peaty finish. Serving Suggestions: Locke's 8 Year old Single Malt can be served neat, on the rocks, or with a little water to taste. A very enjoyable dram to be enjoyed after lunch.irish whiskey
