The Irishman Founder's Reserve Caribbean Cask Finish
The Irishman // Ireland
This limited edition whiskey is the second in the Founder's Reserve Cask series following the Marsala Cask Finish released in 2017. The blended Irish whiskey consists of single pot still and single malt whiskey aged in American oak ex-bourbon barrels. It was then finished for six months in rum barrels which previously held Chairman's Reserve Rum from Saint Lucia Distillers in the Caribbean. A total of 12 rum casks were used yielding 380 bottles per cask. Bottled without chill-filtration at 46% ABV. Available as of July 2018 in seven international markets: Ireland, the US, Canada, Russia, Germany, France, and Holland.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
