The Planet Grape Wine Review
DescriptionThe Irishman Whiskey was founded in 1999 by Bernard and Rosemary Walsh with the mission to craft authentic, world-class spirits in Ireland. Produced from only the purest ingredients, The Irishman Whiskey reflects years of experience and passion, resulting in a truly authentic Irish spirit.The Founders Reserve is a unique take on the old Irish Pot Still Whiskey and is the original and signature blend created by founder 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. This is unusual in itself, as it is the only Irish blended whiskey to contain 100% whiskey distillates from the copper pot still and 0% Grain or Column still whiskey.
