The Irishman 17-Year-Old Single Malt has been announced at the Irish Single Cask of the Year in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2019, which is the world’s leading whisky guide. Now in its 16th year, Murray’s Whisky Bible is said to be the most comprehensive and thoroughly researched series of whisky tasting notes and scores.
The Irishman 17-Year-Old Single Malt was first released in 2016 to mark Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s seventeen years in business and a momentous year for the Walsh family with the commissioning of the Distillery at Royal Oak.
The Irishman 17-Year-Old is a superlative Single Malt from a single cask resulting from 17 years maturation in a first fill Sherry Butt. The signet of this exceptional 17-Year-Old is its rich deep flavour of great warmth. This super-premium, triple distilled Irish whiskey is bottled at 56% ABV and non-chill filtered. With only 1,800 bottles of The Irishman 17-Year-Old Single Malt released in selected markets in 2018, it is one of Walsh Whiskey Distillery’s most exclusive expressions.
