Irishman

The Irishman

The Irishman Irish Whiskey was created by Bernard & Rosemary Walsh who have
successfully created the Hot Irishman Irish Coffee blend. Using their sources of whiskey
supply for the Hot Irishman they remarkably secured a supply agreement for some aged
Irish Whiskey. The Irishman brand represents the rebirth of the 19th Century tradition of 
family owned provincial whiskey distilling that thrived during the last golden age of Irish
Whiskey at the end ot the 19th century. In a hands­on, hand­crafted way Bernard Walsh
and his family produce whiskey in the same way as the 19th century distilling families.

Bernard Walsh’s love and dedication to the whiskey craft has helped to forge 
‘The Irishman’ range of tripled whiskeys, whose smooth and warm glow, perfectly express the
unique Irish spirit of friendship and shared welcome.

The Irishman "70"

A beautiful Irish whiskey, made by blending old pot still whisky with 70% malt whisky which was selected by Bernard Walsh. Aged in bourbon casks, this is a creamy, sweet and supple gem.

Nose: Sweet and spicy, with hints of caramel, black pepper, stewed fruits, cinnamon and peaches. Loads of vanilla too, and a hint of sweet charred oak.

Palate: Malt, chocolate digestives, vanilla yoghurt, tangy oak, tropical fruits and creme caramel.

Finish: Medium length, with oak and butterscotch.

The Irishman Founder's Reserve Small Batch

This Irishman Single Malt is one of only a handful of Irish triple distilled single malts on the market. This is a classic Irish Malt, triple distilled and aged in Oak Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry Casks to give exceptional flavour and complexity. Each batch is limited to a maximum of 6,000 bottles. The Irishman Single Malt boasts an impressive medal haul both in Europe and the USA for its outstanding quality. None more so than a Double Gold Medal “The World Spirits Competition” in San Francisco and its Gold Medal in ISW Germany. Each bottle carries a batch number and signature as a mark of the highest quality.

Nose

Ripe and fruity with luscious peach, dried apricot, and tropical fruits. Hints of orange blossom and vanilla fudge.

Palate

Vanilla sweetness, granola, toasted almonds and honey, a little oak, digestive biscuits, apricots, and a hint of coca.

Finish

Long lingering finish with a light maltiness and sweet oak. Not so much a finish, more of an encore.

The Irishman 12 Years Old Single Malt

At The Irishman we pride ourselves in continually raising the bar on the quality of Irish Whiskeys released, as well as offering something new and excitingly different. In September 2013 as we launched The Irishman 12 Year Old Single Malt, we certainly feel we have delivered on this promise. This outstanding whiskey is the outcome of 12 years maturation in exclusively first fill Bourbon casks. The Irishman 12 Year Old Single Malt is a timeless Irish Malt which is matured in first fill, flame charred Bourbon barrels. Each year we will select only a handful of the best barrels, to make ‘the cut’ for our 12 Year Old. A maximum of 6000 bottles will be produced each year. Each bottle comes numbered by batch as a mark of quality and is non-chill filtered.

Nose

From the exquisite aroma there is no mistaking the influence of the ex-Bourbon casks with the light sweet spicy notes of Vanilla, Cinnamon and even a tincture of Clove. All balanced with Apples and Pears, some charred wood and freshly cut hay.

Taste:

The initial sip is a burst of rich flavours, sweet with Vanilla delicately bolstered by Black Peppercorns, reluctantly giving way to a succulent fruity mid-section before slowly fading to leave a very satisfying grassy cereal conclusion.

Finish:

The fullness of the body fades quite quickly but leaves behind a lingering succulent flavour of Barley and Oak. A touch of creamy dairy fudge and Dark Chocolate adds to the complexity.

The Irishman Single Malt Cask Strength

The Irishman Rare Cask Strength (53% alc) is Ireland’s most exclusive Whiskey, distilled 3 times and carefully aged in American Oak Casks. Each year Bernard Walsh selects a handful of exceptional casks to make this the benchmark for Super Premium Cask Strength Irish Whiskey. It is available in strictly limited quantities with on average 2,000 bottles produced each year. Each bottle is uniquely numbered and signed. It is reserved for the appreciation of the most discerning judges of Whiskey. The Irishman Rare Cask Strength was a Gold Medal winner in “The Premium Irish Whiskey Category” at The Whiskey Masters. It was also rated a magnificent 94.5 points in Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2010 “Quite exceptional”

Nose

A wonderful combination of soft bourbon notes and a light malty subplot with a light sprinkling of ginger.

Taste

Brilliant! Softly oiled, very lightly malted. The arrival of the drier oak offers a perfect bitter sweet foil.

Finish

Long, chocolate, rich and sophisticatedly spiced.

The Irishman Irish Cream

Produced in Ireland, this award winning Irish Cream Liqueur is handcrafted using the finest Irish Whiskey, 100% Irish Dairy Cream and natural vanilla flavour with a hint of toffee.

It is a unique tasting, high quality Irish Cream Liqueur which brings together a great tradition of fine quality Irish Dairy production with even finer Irish Whiskey. This is a recreation of the original Irish Cream Liqueurs using the age old recipe. The Irishman is one of only a handful of Irish Creams using 100% Irish Whiskey.

The fact that cream liqueurs originated in Ireland is no coincidence – since Ireland has a great tradition in producing fine quality dairy products as well as distilling spirits. The combination of both of these two traditions brings us a high quality Irish Cream that has been proven to be the ultimate in luxury, the finest Irish Whiskey blended with real dairy cream. Truly a taste sensation.

Storage

An unopened bottle lasts about 2 years on average, but this can vary depending on storage conditions – exposure to excessively hot storage conditions can affect the shelf life. Whilst all cream liqueurs are best drunk ‘Young’ and should be consumed within 6 months of opening the bottle, refrigerate after opening.
