Review: The Irishman Caribbean Cask Finish Irish Whiskey

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 13, 2019

Bernard and Rosemary Walsh began producing their own independent Irish Whiskey brands in 2007 with the introduction of The Irishman 70 (aka The Irishman Original Clan in the USA) and The Irishman – Single Malt. In 2009 they expanded the portfolio with the introduction Writers Tears, a boutique brand which was created to bring additional nuance to the Irish Whiskey Category.

The Irishman Caribbean Cask Finish Irish Whiskey is the second expression in The Irishman Founder’s Reserve Cask Series. This limited edition Founder’s Reserve Whiskey, after being aged in bourbon barrels is then finished for 6 months in Chairman’s Reserve Rum casks from the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia.  The spirit is then bottled at 46 % alcohol by volume.

The Caribbean Cask Finish Irish Whiskey is part of the 7 brand Walsh Whiskey feature which launched in the LCBO Whisky Shop on February 7, 2019.

Here is a link to my full Review:

Review: The Irishman Caribbean Cask Finish Irish Whiskey

“… The Caribbean Cask Finish Whiskey. however, seemed to wear a mask. The nose was very retrained at first as if the barley and oak were unable to rise up out of the glass. There was a light cane sweetness apparent which seemed to cover over the barley grain and the oak spice. In fact, it seemed to me that some of the residual rum from the finishing cask was competing for my attention …”

Please enjoy the review which concludes with an Old fashioned Cocktail.
