Whisky Gold Cock 3YR

Gold Cock whiskey

 

The oldest brand of Czech whiskey, Gold Cock whiskey, is offered in three year-old and twelve year-old grain distillates. Its traditional production was taken over by RUDOLF JELÍNEK from Distillery Dolany. The taste of this whiskey is smooth, with a woody-vanilla finish and a hint of peat smoke, which is used for drying the malt.

 

In the production of 3 year-old blended whiskey, Moravian barley and crystal clear spring water are used. After distillation, this Gold Cock whiskey is stored in oak barrels where it ages for at least 3 years.

 

When aging in bohemian oak barrels, evaporation takes place, where about two percent of the content evaporates per year. This loss has a poetic name "angel tax". An old proverb says that it is a reward for angels who protect the quality of the whiskey during the time of aging.

 

The flawless experience of the distillers in the process of distillation and aging of distillates gives this traditional Czech whiskey an exceptionally well-balanced flavour and aroma, the best evidence of which are repeated awards from tasting competitions around the world.
