The Irishman 17-Year-Old Single Malt is an extremely limited release, with just three casks of 600 bottles per cask produced each year. Originally released in 2016 to mark Walsh Whiskey’s 17th year in business, the expression has become a must-have in any whiskey enthusiast’s collection.
The influence of the Sherry cask is forever present, with notes of dark chocolate.
This is filled with a beautiful toasted oak and sweet sherried raisins giving a complexity that is satisfying to the palate.
The finish comes in a combination of nutty oloroso sherry as well as a dark chocolate that begs to continue.
