Bright gold color. Yeasty, fruity aromas and flavors of raisin soda bread, sassafras candy, orange pepper, and pencil eraser with a supple, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a peppery, medium-to-long finish revealing notes of spicy rum cake, honeyed grain, fennel, coriander and grains of paradise, and cedar and chalk finish. A zesty, spicy, warming Irish whiskey.

Single malt Irish whiskeys, like their Scottish cousins, are whiskies that are only made with malted barley. They are usually triple distilled through both column and pot stills, although there are a few exclusively pot-distilled brands.
