W.D. O'Connell Bill Phil

Matured in 1st fill bourbon barrels and bottled at 47.5% ABV, non chill filtered and limited to 306 bottles. Distinctly peated, fresh charcoal bbq on the nose, revealing a sharp contrast on the pallet, creamy texture, rich malt and citrus fruit flavours coming through with a delicate smokey mellow finish.

Bergamot oil scented light peated smoke fills the senses. Distinctively fresh vibrant notes of cereal slowly emerge, carrying waves of poached pear, earl grey tea as the phenolic oils dissipate.


Clarified butter over crumbled biscuit with clean waves of lightly smoked malt, banana bread, sweet cassia & bergamot. 


Fresh clementine oil, whispers of smoke, applewood chips & ripe orchard fruits.
