Gentle when sipped, fierce when sipped some more.
Remember 1849? Of course you don't, unless you're a vampire or Keith Richards. It's the year that the famous 69th Infantry Regiment was formed ― that's the one that leads the New York City's St. Patrick's Day Parade. The Irish Brigade has fought in the Civil War, both World Wars, Iraq, and Afghanistan, becoming one of the most honored military units in the US. So, where does Whiskey enter the picture? This unique Irish-American dram comes from Ireland to pay its tributes to The Fighting 69th's Irish heritage.
The Fighting 69th Irish Whiskey is distilled in Ireland using quality (un)malted barley, corn, and pure Irish water. It's triple-distilled in a combination of handmade copper-pot stills and column stills and aged in single- and double-char ex-Bourbon casks, Port, and Oloroso Sherry casks. It's a complex blend of Whiskey aged between 4 and 6 years with a higher percentage of malted barley used, compared to your regular Irish Whiskey. Severely drinkable, this malty and smooth dram makes for the best kind of tribute.
