This blended Irish whiskey is a collaboration between Master Distiller Darryl McNally of The Dublin Liberties Distillery (set to open summer 2018) and co-founders of The Dead Rabbit, Sean Muldoon & Jack McGarry. The sourced whiskey was first aged in seasoned bourbon barrels for five years and then finished in small virgin American oak barrels. Released for the NYC bar's fifth anniversary on February 12, 2018 in New York and New Jersey with an expansion to select markets in April of that year.

Tasting Notes

"This whiskey is all about the oak. Barrel spices, dark vanilla, and toasted nut and cereal notes all come through on the nose, but the wood is most prominent. The spices really come in as you taste with a moderately full body. Just enough sweetness to help smooth those rough edges down. You can almost see the oak barrels in your glass. The proof gives it a nice bite and it makes sense when making cocktails. Otherwise, expect a pretty dry finish if drinking neat. "
