Gold color. Aromas of blackened pie crusts, grilled pear, sea salt, honey, Royall Lyme., and marmalade with a velvety, vibrant, dryish medium body and a graceful, stimulating, medium-long shortbread, custard, savory herbs, and caraway finish. Captivating aromas and lengthy flavors; a slightly smoky malt with tantalizing richness.

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.
