Light gold color. Interesting, herbal aromas of juniper, cedar plank, irish spring soap, egg white, and galangal with a satiny, crisp, fruity medium body and a peppery, charming, medium-length wintergreen, caramelized aliums, black pepper, rice confection, and pickled ginger finish. An intriguingly herbal Irish Single Malt for a gin drinker who needs a proper dram.

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.
