John L. Sullivan is a small batch Irish whiskey that is crafted using only the finest Irish grain and other local ingredients before being carefully aged in bourbon casks. Triple-distilled in copper pot stills, the spirit preserves the storied traditions of whiskey production. Smooth, balanced and flavorful, John L. Sullivan Irish Whiskey is as unique as its namesake and brings together a taste of the old country along with the new. This blended Irish whiskey exhibits subtle notes of spice and vanilla, making for a smooth drinking experience.
This blended Irish whiskey is carefully matured in the finest oak casks for a minimum of 6 years before being skillfully blended to deliver the smooth taste profile that is unique to a Forgotten Irish Whiskey of 'L.L.' flavor. Exactly like 200 years ago, Kinahans L.L. whiskey is still matured only in the finest handpicked oak casks. The aged whiskey is still carefully sampled cask by cask to select only the whiskey, which overlays unusually mellow, rich and full flavored character.
The nose is slight but undoubtedly rich with dark fruit; cherry, raisin, fig (with Christmas pudding notes on the nose for those lucky enough to know what that is) along with floral lemongrass and a touch of nutmeg. The taste is sweet and creamy on the palate, with butterscotch, honey and peppercorn bringing along sweet Bourbon Cask notes with dried fruit returning through notes of maraschino cherries and a pinch of brown sugar. The finish has lingering notes of ginger spices with a faint glimmer of almond to end a complex Irish Whiskey from start to finish.
In play since 1757, the brand was shuttered during Prohibition like so many other whiskey labels around the world. Residents of the namesake town rallied over time to have it reopened, and it is in that spirit the new Kilbeggan Single Grain Irish Whiskey is debuting. Kilbeggan Single Grain Irish Whiskey, according to those behind it, is bottled at 86 proof and non-age statement in nature. Consisting of a mash bill that’s 94% corn and 6% malted barley, this whiskey was initially aged in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in a marriage of ex-bourbon and various fortified wine casks.
The Tyrconnell Single Malt Irish whiskey is a historic Irish whiskey brand born from the Watt Distillery in the late 18th century. This whiskey was inspired after a legendary horse who won the iconic National Produce Stakes in 1876, against all odds. This double distilled single malt whiskey is made from 100% malted barley in traditional copper pot stills and showcases a beautifully fresh, fruity bouquet with an incredibly smooth, sweet taste and delicate dry finish.
Inspired by Ireland’s ancient distilling traditions, Connemara’s smooth sweet malt taste and complex peat flavors makes it a truly unique Irish whiskey. Connemara is the most decorated Irish whiskey with a huge collection of Gold Medals and has been honored as the “Worlds Best Irish Single Malt”. Connemara allows you to unearth the Peated Pleasures of Ireland.
