THE NAME 1808 PAYS HOMAGE TO THE YEAR DUNVILLE’S IRISH WHISKEY WAS FOUNDED IN BELFAST, FROM WHERE IT WENT ON TO BECOME ONE OF THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS WHISKEYS.
A blend of malt, grain and pot still whiskeys. Strong and uncompromised, bold and confident, charming and honest like the city of its birth.
Initial burst of sweet vanilla leads to crisp orchard fruits, apples and pears. Then lemon curd, leading on to candied Lemon peel over notes of clean malt.
Soft and creamy mouthfeel, buttery, with ripened citrus and baked biscuit, coming together in a burst of fresh lemon meringue, followed by a wisp of char and white pepper.
Slight hints of dry smoke linger and intertwine with the juicier fruit notes, carrying through to a finish of sweet spice.
