The Irishman - Dick Macks - Peated Red Ale Cask - 50.1% abv - 50mlRegular price €14.50
Two of Ireland’s leading artisan drinks-producing families have collaborated to create a once-off, super-premium Irish whiskey, finished in a rare craft beer cask. The Irishman – Peated Red Ale Cask Finish is a triple-distilled, non-chill filtered, marriage of aged Single Malt and Single Pot Still Irish whiskeys by Walsh Whiskey in Carlow. The whiskey is aged for an additional 9 months in a Peated Red Ale Cask from Dick Mack’s Brewhouse in Dingle and bottled at 50.1% ABV.
Just 276 bottles were produced of this incredibly rare Irish whiskey, with the majority pre-sold to members of The Irish Whiskey Society, Dublin Fire Brigade Whiskey Club and Carlow Whiskey Society.
It is the third time that Walsh Whiskey has collaborated with Dick Mack’s Brewhouse to create a unique whiskey. Previous releases were The Irishman – Coffee Stout Cask finish (2018) and Writers’ Tears – Seaweed IPA Cask finish (2020).
Rest a while, minutes maybe, then swish and see it sashay down the glass. A bold step, malt in abundance, and as if from left stage, a seamless transition to apricot, peach perhaps! Only to be swept off your feet with a final tango. Cigar time!
Nose: Zesty spice and malt in abundance.
Palate: Black peppercorn, apricot, peach, and tobacco leaf.
Finish: Like a log fire burning slowly at the end of the night. Glowing embers of warmth.
