The initial set of Waterford's single farm bottlings for the U.S. showcases Irina 2015 barley grown on three different farms.

All variables of production besides the specific locale of each farm were kept precisely in control, with the releases therefore designed to showcase the differences produced by terroir. Each was matured for just under four years, in a combination of casks including 35% bourbon, 25% French oak, 20% new American oak, and 20% VDN, short for Vin Doux Naturels, a sweet dessert wine from France. Casks were filled at approximately 72% ABV and the releases are each bottled at 50% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"The nose offers rich chocolate fudge and vanilla, alongside lemons, a floral bouquet, and cocoa. The palate offers an amalgamation of vibrant, bright citrus, taking the form of ruby red grapefruit slices and candied citrus peel, as well as powdered sugar dusted-jelly doughnuts. The finish offers tannic oak, cloves, and more of the tag team of citrus and cocoa."
