Notes about Whiskey:
This outstanding whiskey is the outcome of 12 years maturation in exclusively first fill Bourbon casks. The Irishman 12 Year Old Single Malt is a timeless Irish Malt which is matured in first fill, flame charred Bourbon barrels. Each year we will select only a handful of the best barrels to make ‘the cut’ for our 12 Year Old. A maximum of 6000 bottles will be produced each year. Each bottle comes numbered by batch as a mark of quality and is non-chill filtered.
Always Single Malt focused – whether championed in blends or pure Single Malt expressions. Always enriching the flavor, lengthening the depth, refining the smoothness. After all, everything comes back to the whiskey. It’s our pride and our focus. Every one a true original, triple distilled to leave a lasting impression.
A tip of the hat to Ireland’s Golden Era of Irish Whiskey. Learning from the past to create the future. Redefining Irish Single Malts. Single Malt – that’s our heart.
Nose: Sweet spicy notes of Vanilla, Cinnamon and even a tincture of Clove. All balanced with Apples and Pears, some charred wood and freshly cut hay.
Taste: Sweet with Vanilla, bolstered by Black Peppercorns, reluctantly giving way to a succulent fruity mid-section.
Finish: Lingering succulent flavor of Barley and Oak. A touch of creamy dairy fudge and Dark Chocolate.

"Highly aromatic, with allspice, ground cinnamon, and hints of clove. Behind the spice, there is soft vanilla toffee, creamed coconut, and grapefruit peel. A palate comprised of citrus, peel oils, toffee, red berries, sweet barley, cinnamon, pepper, and star anise transition to a greater emphasis on toffee, hints of chocolate, more maltiness, and a little oak. The finish allows the spices to shine."
