The Irishman drips with 200 years of Irish pride.

The Irishman line of Whiskeys comes from the upstarts at Walsh Whiskey who set out to rediscover Irish-style Whiskey as it was made 200 years ago. When Walsh Whiskey first started, they contracted their distilling to Bushmills. But their success has allowed them to build out their own distillery in Carlow — in the heart of Ireland’s southern farm country — where they make four versions of The Irishman, three Writer’s Tears, and two varieties of Irish Cream Liqueur.

The Irishman 12 Year Old Single Malt Irish Whiskey was launched in 2013, and demand has been high. But due to the limitations of being a smaller production house, only 6000 bottles of the 12 YO single malt are being made each year. This is accomplished by hand selecting the best cast from inventory and giving them extra time to rest.

Both of their single malts are triple distilled — as Irish Whiskey should be — and aged in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks without chill filtration. Upon initial release it was an instant classic, winning Gold and Best in Class at the International Spirits Challenge.

The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. It was St.Patrick who made the shamrock so popular.

Finish was a bit strong, but delicious flavor. I still prefer the small batch from Irishman.
 
George
George,
Clean and crisp. Light and airy. Citrus. Good for sipping
 
Clay
Clay,
Probably my uneducated pallate but seemed a little bland and had a single note. Not bad, just not overly interesting.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Very smooth but I did not love it.
 
Ivan
Ivan,
I like this a lot. Glad I ventured into the Irish whiskeys. I would buy this. Very smooth, a little spicy. My sample ran out too soon.
 
Zack
Zack,
A little sweet, but not in a bad way. The flavors are distinct and mix well without stepping on one another. I’d buy this as a bottle.
 
Catherine
Catherine,
I thought this was very smooth
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Smooth from start to finish. Mixes well with sodas if you choose but of course very appealing on or off the rocks.
 
Duane
Duane,
Very meh. I was disappointed.

An extreamly strong whiskey that takes time to acquire a taste for. Really enjoyed sipping on a glass of it over an hour period.

Very tasty spicy
 
Shant
Shant,
Right off the bat, the aroma of the whiskey is a pleasant vanilla. Nice and smooth mouthfeel with lingering notes of fudge. Definitely deserves a place in any whisk(e)y lover's home.
 
Dan
Dan,
Good front and backend
 
Martin
Martin,
Very pleasant when nosing. Vanilla at the beginning and then a hint of pear, apricot and a just a hint of sherry. Short aftertaste. Smoother after the first taste. Enjoyed it. One that you would want to have a bottle on the shelf to change your other tastings up a bit.
 
Steven
Steven,
Delicious. Caramel and spice. Smooth.
 
Guillermo
Guillermo,
I definitely taste the apricot, vanilla, the sherry, pear and malted barley. Very smooth at the beginning and at the end.
 
Michael
Michael,
It goes down a bit harsh but has a smooth and very pleasing finish.
 
Jarrod

Light but tasty with hints of pear to end.
 
Matt
Matt,
Pretty tasty at first but has a very boozy aftertaste.
 
Robert
Robert,
remained of a good Bourbon
 
Eoin
Eoin,
Really like the Walshs Whiskeys. This one is quite subtle, doesn't have a strong punch but is a quality whiskey for the price and to my mind beats the likes of Redbreast hands down.
 
David
David,
Not bad, somewhat smooth, but lacking in body/taste.
 
Kenneth
Kenneth,
Loved it...ordered a bottle to share with friends!
 
Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
Not bad but not great. Compared to other 12 YO like Redbreast, this one's lacking, decent Sherry notes in, but finished flat.
 
Matt
Matt,
Had a tasting tonight with 3 other whiskey fans and universally this pour was dead last by all four of us . This might be the worst 12 year pour I have ever had
