Uisce Beatha Real Irish Whiskey
Rok Drinks // Ireland
Uisce Beatha is the Gaelic phrase for "water of life," the genesis of the modern English word for "whiskey." The whiskey of its name (no pressure, or anything) is produced by ROK Drinks company, which was founded by hairstylist (and Patron Tequila founder) John Paul DeJoria and Jonathan Kendrick. It's a blend of Irish single malt and grain whiskeys, aged in ex-Bourbon casks.
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.
"This is a very easy drinking Irish whiskey, with bright, red fruit flavors (apples, plums) and sweet cereal. There is a light touch of smoke from the char of the bourbon barrel. There's not much that would set it too far apart from other blended Irish whiskeys in terms of flavor, but it will please those who like them."
