About

This is a blend of 80% grain whiskey and 20% 10 year old malt whiskey. It is further matured in first-fill bourbon barrels for four years and finished for six months in Oloroso sherry casks. (Sherry finishing is rare with Irish, oloroso finishing is practically unheard of.) The nose is solid with notes driven by the sherry — orange peel, leather, and dried fruits — with a distinct nuttiness and plenty of floral aromatics backing it up. It’s quite a bit heavier than you expect from the typical Irish, right from the start. On the palate, the whiskey starts with modest notes of honey and vanilla, then filters them through barrel char, some green vegetables, and a slightly sulfured match-head note. The finish is more savory than typical, with a lingering forest floor character. It’s more complex than the typical Irish blend, and it all comes together a whiskey that merits some real consideration. A-  Drinkhacker.com
