Cooley introduces Greenore 15yr. grain whiskeyMay 16th, 2008
Two posts in one morning! My contact at Cooley let me know about this a few days ago, but I waited to post it up until I got specific details on when it would be available in the U.S.
The Cooley distillery has just introduced the Ireland’s old grain whisky under the Greenore label. Many of you will know that the distillery already has a standard 8 year old Greenore. This 15 yr. old will be a limited edition of only 5,000 bottles.
Here’s the scoop on U.S. distribution. I quote from Jack Teeling at Cooley:
We are aiming to have Greenore 15 Yr Old in the U.S. for September as we already have label approval and are in the process of pre-selling into some key accounts.
I’ll be getting a review sample in the near future and will pass on my thoughts. It will be interesting to see how a 15 year old grain whiskey tastes.
