If you'll notice on the bottle there is small print above the Kinahan's brand with the words "The Lord Lieutenant" above it. This refers to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland who loved this whiskey so much, he demanded that a vat be set aside exclusively for him and the letters "LL" signified his allotment. This sourced blended Irish whiskey is aged between 6-10 years and is non chill-filtered.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is very much in the sweet camp with vanilla, marshmallow, and maple syrup notes, but you'll also find breakfast cereal flakes and a little sweet tobacco. The sweetness isn't enough to cushion the mid-palate as the whiskey isn't rich enough to prevent the heat of the alcohol coming through. This does help to provide a dry finish that is not unpleasant. Not one to write home about, but perfectly suitable to have as a sidecar to an ale or lager."
