Master distiller Robert Cassell blended sourced 10-year-old Irish pot-still whiskey with sourced 10 year-old American whiskey, at a 52% to 48% ratio, for the release, and bottled the result at 45% ABV.
Other WhiskeyA spirit distilled from a mash of grain(s) at less than 95% ABV, bottled at no less than 40% ABV. The product must have characteristics, taste, and aroma generally attributed to whiskey
"The nose is floral, with honey, hay, citrus zest, and spice. The palate begins with toffee and fudge, moving to clover honey, along with chewy, dried fruits. There's also more spicy zest, oak, and a touch of mint. A relatively quick finish shifts in the hot and dry direction, before ending with bitter cacao and milk chocolate. An Irish-American blend that tastes like a Speyside-heavy Scotch blend."
