Waterford Organic Gaïa 1.1 is characterised by the expression of the terroir, using 100% Irish barley. For this version, barley grown biodynamically was chosen. The barley used comes from 6 farms. The blend was made from bourbon barrels for 42% and new American oak barrels for 17%, then French oak barrels for 23% and barrels having contained natural sweet wine for 17%.
With such precise work, the result is a single malt that is very expressive of the terroir and still exceptional.
Nose : Fine, racy, with a vanilla and grassy, lactic tone.
Palate : Ample rich, with this vanilla and herbaceous expression, green Régisse and fresh walnuts.
Finish : Long and silky, we feel the rusticity, the terroir, malt and herbaceous.
Waterford is a whisky distillery located in the South East of Ireland since in 2016. It is the fruit of the imagination of Mark Reynier, the former owner of Bruichladdich. Waterford has an exceptional state-of-the-art facility originally built by Diageo in 2004 and converted to distillation in 2015. The brand produces single malts using the highest quality raw materials.
