Hard to pronounce, easy to enjoy.

The Irish words “Barr an Uisce” literally mean “above the water.” Pronounced “bar on ishka,” if you feel like torturing yourself. Barr an Uisce is also the Irish name given to Barraniskey, which is a town land set in the heart of the County of Wicklow, on the East Coast of Ireland. The Irish word “Uisce “ or “water” in English, was used during the time Irish monks first distilled what we now know to be Whiskey. They called it “Uisce Beatha” meaning “Water of Life.” Damn straight it is! Known as the Garden of Ireland, Wicklow represents all that is stunning in the Irish countryside.

The founder of “Barr an Uisce” Irish Whiskey, Ian Jones, comes from a small village just outside of Barraniskey. Ian’s family has a long history in the Spirit business. The ambition of Barr An Uisce is to celebrate all the fine things Ireland has to offer while honoring the times gone by. We love Ireland, we love Whiskey and perhaps most importantly – we love Irish Whiskey. To say we are excited about what the distillery has to offer is a bit of an understatement. Just a bit.

We’ve established that the stuff has the DNA to succeed. But how does it taste like? Light, smooth and approachable. Thoroughly enjoyable. Barr An Uisce Wicklow Rare Small Batch is a blend of 80% grain and 20% ten-year-old malt. Matured in first fill bourbon barrels for four years and finished in Oloroso casks for six months, we can characterize this Whisky as your classic everyday dram. If you’re looking for a gateway into the wonderful world of Irish Whiskey, we’ve found a great place to start.

Ray
Ray,
Super smooth. Smells of honey with light grassy notes. The taste is very smooth, sweet flavors upfront give way to a slight peppery, smoky finish.

Very different, citrus peel

Simply the best whiskey, Irish or otherwise, I’ve ever had. I’m no connoisseur but Barr an Uisce makes me feel like one.

This is going to be my go to whiskey for Irish, along with redbreast
 
Ken
Ken,
Fantastic. Very smooth, with a unique nuttiness for an Irish whiskey. I think it is now my favorite Irish whiskey.

Great bite, easy to drink.
 
RUSS
RUSS,
Very nice honey and vanilla start and finish that lingers for awhile. This could easily fall into the whiskey neat or on ice category. Lite smoke and nut thru the nose.
 
Dan
Dan,
This was a very pleasant surprise. The grassy notes in the nose opened up to a light sweet meringue, marzipan taste. The buttery mouth feel hinted at the quality. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Solid Irish whiskey with rich vanilla aromas and hints oof honey. Caramel comes with the first sip and finishes with a slightly nutty flavor. A little more depth than a lot of Irish whiskeys I have tried at this price point. Will definitely order another when the bottle runs dry.

It was an injoyable taste. Smell of Vanilla, Honey, and Caramels were good. Flavor was a little to peppery for my tastes.
