Cooley, the independent Irish whiskey distillery, has released a 15 Year Old small batch (just 5,000 bottles) of Greenore. It claims to be the world's oldest bottling of Irish grain whiskey to be released. Single grain whiskeys are rare, as most grain whiskey is used in blends. The addition of this 15 Year Old to the Cooley collection follows the success of the 8 Year Old Greenore, which is a permanent offering.

The new release is bottled from a small batch of casks. Aged in single use bourbon oak casks and matured in the 200-year old granite warehouses of the Old Kilbeggan distillery in county Westmeath, the whiskey is complex and robust "with new depths and layers of flavours".

Modern wine packaging’s in the bag

Most studies suggest they're considerably better for the environment. They’re more convenient, too, if you want to keep your wine fresh for more than a couple of days.
