JJ Corry - The O'Reilly - Selfridges Exclusive - Grain Blend - 46% abv - 50mlRegular price $18.09
J.J. Corry - The ‘O Reilly (46% ABV) is comprised of a blend of five, nine, ten and eleven-year-old whiskeys from different Irish distilleries, which have been matured in a combination of ex-Mezcal, ex-Tequila and ex-Bourbon barrels.
J.J. Corry has created an unparalleled library of Irish whiskey flavours with the aim to make outstanding expressions like ‘The O'Reilly’, that showcase the best of Irish whiskey, old and new.
The influence of the mezcal, tequila, and bourbon casks, is said to bring together an assemblage of flavour that marries the zesty and subtle honeyed notes of agave with the oak spice and caramel undertones of bourbon.
Commenting on the news, Louise McGuane, J.J. Corry Founder and CEO, said: “The O Reilly marks our continued experimentation around casks seasoned with agave-based spirits. We’ve named it in honour of John Patrick O Reilly the leader of the Saint Patricks Batallion, a group of Irish Soldiers who defected from the American army to fight on the side of Mexico in the Mexican/American war in the late 1800’s. The Battalion are celebrated every St Patrick’s day in Mexico and we felt this was a firring tribute.”
This was limited to only 133 bottles and sold exclusively through Selfridges in the UK.
