This whiskey certainly disproves the notion that all Irish Whiskeys are the same. Bringing back older styles of Irish Whiskey production, this is double distilled and uses peated malted barley. It then gets to spend its life in ex-bourbon barrels for 12 years.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma has a small amount of peat smoke, but what's also nice to find are Japanese nori and sea salt. The entry on your tongue is a touch sweet, but spice and wood notes are quick to follow. The finish to the whiskey has a decent length, but it would have been nice to see this bottled at a slightly higher proof."
