This is a blended whiskey comprised of 10 year-old whiskey aged in first-fill bourbon barrels and finished in ex-sherry casks. John L Sullivan was an Irish-American bare-knuckle boxer, and the last to hold the title of World Bare-Knuckle Champion of the world, a title he defended after a 75 round bout in 1889. Produced at Cooley Distillery, this unfortunately has been discontinued.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is much like a cuppa Irish Breakfast tea--lemon, dark honey, and tea. Orchard fruits come through on the palate along with cereal notes and toffee. There is just a small hint of char from the barrel. "
