The new expression is made possible by a close collaboration between the Walsh family in Ireland's County Carlow and the Legaret family in Cognac, France.

Taste: Pressed grapes and citrus zest.

Finish: Chocolate undertones and lingering spice.

93 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023

"Fresh orchard aromas of green apple and pear while clear sherry cask influence evokes dates and gingerbread; deliciously toasty and nutty on the palate with a satisfyingly weighty mouthfeel."

94 Pts & #10, Top 20 of 2019 - Whisky Advocate:

"This blend of single malt and pot still whiskeys exhibits the incredible synergy between chocolate, cinnamon, and pot still spices. Vinous at times from partial cognac-cask maturation, this has aromas of dark berry fruit, cinnamon, fudge, milk chocolate, malt biscuits, jellied fruit, and a smudge of dry spices. Compelling, well-structured whiskey, with cinnamon, chocolate, dark toffee, pepper, and ginger. It’s never cloying, nor overly sweet, just a richly rewarding glass."

91 Points - Vinepair

"From Walsh Whiskey, arrives this blend of single pot still and single malt whiskeys, which are aged in bourbon and Cognac casks. Both of those vessels play a large role in its final profile, with dried fruit and spiced aromas recalling the latter, and sweet tropical fruit notes and a toasty finish coming from the former. Bottled at 46 percent ABV, this is a well-balanced sipper."

"Silky and rich with lush tropical fruits, raisins and a clean minerality at the finish."
