With only 2850 bottles in existence and just 300 bottles allocated to the UK you may want to get in early for this one! The Irishman Rare Cask Strength Whiskey is one of the highest Irish Whiskeys ever rated by Jim Murray in the Whisky Bible scoring an incredible 93.5 points.
Jim says that The Irishman Rare cask strength is a wonderful combination of bourbony notes with a malt sub plotits not just the strength no, its the immediate balance of such high quality with rich character.just so wonderful to come across a full strength Irish Whiskey. Quite exceptional to be sure
According to Bernard Walsh, who has hand-picked these casks, this is a new expression of Irish Whiskey that we experimented with in 08/09 with a limited release of 1400 bottles. The reaction was such that we are now committed to releasing a few hand-picked casks every year, each delivering their own unique taste.
Furthermore this rare whiskey has already been judged in the USA (by the Beverage Tasting Institute) to be worthy of the Gold medal this year.
Matured for between 12 and 18 years and bottled in January 2010 at a strength of 53% abv, each bottle is individually numbered and presented in an elegant wooden box with a signed and numbered certificate.
