Zesty spice, with hints of caramel, black pepper, cinnamon and peaches with a slight hint of vanilla and green apple on the nose. Pot Still spice, malt, dark chocolate, bourbon oak, and crème caramel on the pallet. A long and lingering finish with oak and butterscotch.
The Irishman Founder’s Reserve is the original signature whiskey created by Bernard Walsh. It is a blend of two styles, Single Malt and Single Pot Still. The proportions used are 70% Single Malt and 30% Single Pot Still, with no grain whiskey present. This is unusual in itself for an Irish blended whiskey to contain 100% whiskey distillates from the copper pot still and 0% Grain or Column Still whiskey. This results in a much more flavorsome whiskey. Founder’s Reserve is triple distilled and matured in Bourbon Casks.
