Gold color. Aromas and flavors of cedar, grilled red plum, apricot marmalade on toast, and ginger with a round, crisp, dry medium body and a peppery, refreshing, medium-length finish with elements of apricot and orange, scorched honey granola, and cloves. Rich and spicy, this Whiskey will do nicely on the rocks to open up more of the spice aromas and smooth out the touch of heat to the palate.

Blended Irish Whiskey is a blend of malt and grain whiskies that makes up a large majority of Irish Whiskey production. It can be blended with Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, allowing for any combination of the three to fall under the category. Any grains may be used, as well as it may be distilled in pot and/or column stills, and it may be made at a single distillery or multiple distilleries.
