The Irishman Single Malt 12 Year Irish Whiskey
At The Irishman, we pride ourselves in continually raising the bar on the quality of Irish Whiskeys released, as well as offering something new and excitingly different. In September 2013 as we launched The Irishman 12-Year-Old Single Malt, we certainly feel we have delivered on this promise. This outstanding whiskey is the outcome of 12 years of maturation in exclusively first-fill Bourbon casks. The Irishman 12-Year-Old Single Malt is a timeless Irish Malt that is matured in a 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.
The Irishman Single Malt 12 Year Irish Whiskey Tasting Notes
From the exquisite aroma, there is no mistaking the influence of the ex-Bourbon casks with the light 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.
The initial sip is a burst of rich flavors, sweet with Vanilla delicately bolstered by Black Peppercorns, reluctantly giving way to a succulent fruity mid-section before slowly fading to leave a very satisfying grassy cereal conclusion.
The fullness of the body fades quite quickly but leaves behind a lingering succulent flavor of Barley and Oak.
A touch of creamy dairy fudge and Dark Chocolate adds to the complexity.
