It’s the 2015 release of The Irishman’s Cask Strength Irish whiskey, an ace expression released in limited numbers each year. It was drawn from specially selected ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 54% ABV. 2,595 bottles were produced.
Nose: Caramel and vanilla, with a little bit of honeycomb bringing to mind Crunchie bars.
Palate: Oak starts to ramp up here, with pepper and nutmeg adding a hearty hint of spice to the clean orchard fruit and milk chocolate notes.
Finish: Lasting nuttiness and a final touch of spices from the cask. Very long.
Overall: Big-bodied Irish whiskey – yum!
Distiller: Walsh Whiskey Distillery Co Whiskeys And Liqueurs | ABV: 54% |
