Only six ex-bourbon casks are chosen for each batch of Watershed, carefully selected by Malt Master Stuart Nickerson. After being cut to 47%abv with fresh Ballindoney water, every bottle is individually numbered, so that each one is special.
‘Watershed’ is the first whiskey to be cut to 47% with water from Ballindoney farm outside Clonmel. The land at Ballindoney has been farmed by the Ahearn family for over 200 years. The Farm lies on a plain of land sheltered by the Galtee, Knockmealdowns and Comeragh mountains, with fresh water flowing down to be collected and used to cut the Watershed whiskey.
Tasting Notes on Watershed
The nose opens with strong vanilla and sweet fruit notes followed by hints of grain.
Black pepper rises on the pallet, overtaken by vanilla fudge and just a trace of raisins.
The smooth finish of Watershed is warm and comforting, like honey on warm buttered toast.
