Our smokiest blend yet, Midnight Silkie builds on the rich smoke yet smooth character of the Silkie Irish Whiskey collection. Continuing to draw inspiration from the folk tales of the Donegal coast and the smokey whiskeys once distilled here, Midnight Silkie is a blend for triple distilled single malts and a triple distilled peated single malt at its heart. Created to be savoured over the midnight watch.

Tasting notes

Initially intense molasses sweetness, as it warms a dry peat smoke takes over. Pipe ash , raisins and sultanas boiled with nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Then toffee apples, a toasted, drying oak and tobacco and leather and yet a freshness – a brisk hint of pine and blood oranges even sweet grapefruit

Additional Product Info

The Magic is Everywhere

Under soft moonlight, our mermaid comes ashore as a Silkie, at the secluded Silver Strand, on the Donegal Coast. Gently shedding her seal coat, she reveals her human form – a beautiful dark haired maiden with deep, soulful eyes. Dancing along the sand, revelling in the freedom she enjoys in both worlds, she is unaware of the young fisherman captivated by her beauty. She turns, their eyes meet and their love is set. Our Silkie makes her home with her fisherman but the sea restlessly calls to her drawing her back to the water. The call becomes so strong that she must leave her love and return to the ocean forever.
