The company was founded by Bernard and Rosemary Walsh. the whiskey is matured in a combination of American oak casks that were previously used to mature bourbon and European oak casks that were previously used to mature Oloroso Sherry.
Region: Walsh, Ireland
Nose: Fruit with notes of creamy vanilla, malt chocolate, and barley. Hints of licorice and amber are also noticeable.
Palate: Pine nuts with citrus fruits and baked cake, sprinkled with apricots and oranges. With the whiskey sitting out for 5+ minutes untouched, sherry notes and almonds shine through to the forefront of the palate.
Finish: Medium to Long Finish with Wet Oak and light dark chocolate orange zest finish off a lovely dram.
