Gold color. Aromas and flavors of brown butter biscuits, sarsaparilla float, toasted pumpernickel and soda bread with spicy chutney, and banana nut bread with a round, tangy, dry medium-to-full body and a peppery, interesting, medium-long finish conveying notes of orange oil and black pepper, baking spices on cherry pipe tobacco, tres leche cake, and spiced nuts. Vanilla cream with spicy and earthy components; an excellent sipper with a spicy characteristic that is a natural pairing for cigars.

Irish Single Pot Still Whiskey is an in Irish Whiskey made at a single distillery from a mixed mash of malted barley and unmalted barley in a single pot still. It is made with a minimum of 30% malted and 30% unmalted barley, and it is the use of the unmalted barley as well as the production resulting from a single distillery in a single pot that helps give it a distinct spiciness knows as ‘pot still character’; Irish Single Pot Still is also the only style of whiskey exclusively made in Ireland.
