McCarthy's Irish Whiskey is a blend of Irish single grain and single malt whiskey. The grain whiskey is slightly predominant and its natural, soft structure is supported by the spicy complexity of the single malt. The McCarthy's Irish Whiskey is distilled three times and after its storage in ex-Bourbon barrels has received a finish in Oloroso sherry barrels, which gives it a little more depth.
Exclusively bottled for the Austrian market and limited to 480 bottles.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of intense lemon spread, yellow apples, wholemeal biscuits and a soft, cinnamon finish.
McCarthy's is one of the great Irish clans of the Middle Ages. Whiskey making is deeply rooted in the family history and McCarthy's Irish whiskey is said to represent that proud association.
McCarthy's is initially operating as an independent bottler. The whiskey itself is distilled by the "Great Northern Distillery" in Dundalk - currently the largest independent distillery in Ireland.
Manufacturer: McCarthy's, Wework, 2 Dublin Landings, Dublin, Ireland
The flavor opens with hints of toasted oats, fresh yellow apple and warm cinnamon spice, with drops of dried vine fruits. The finish is one of nutty vanilla and rich creaminess on the palate. The blend combines the sweet softness of grain whiskey and the lively citrus of the malt whiskey to deliver a winning combination.
