Light golden straw color. Yeasty, grainy aromas and flavors of soda raisin bread, fermenting apples and pears, spiced praline, and waxy honeycomb and clay with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a honeyed peach scone, creme brulee, and baking spices finish. A robust, Irish whiskey with solid flavors and snappy, peppery finish.

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.
