Pale amber color. Aromas of molten plastic, rubber, and clay mask over roasted nut brittle and grain notes with a lean dryish light-to-medium body and a hot and jumbled over spiced nut, peat moss, white pepper, and waxy honeycomb driven finish.

Irish whiskeys, both blended and malt, are usually triple distilled through both column and pot stills, although there are a few exclusively pot-distilled brands. Irish Pure Pot Still Whiskey is generally labeled as such. Otherwise, Irish whiskeys are a mix of pot and column-distilled whiskeys. Irish Malt Whiskey is likewise so designated. Standard Irish Whiskey is a blend of malt and grain whiskies.
