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 casks 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.

An decent, if unremarkable dram. It holds true to the Celtic whisky flavor traditions, with some complexity introduced from the aging and mix. I’d reserve this for a cold evening when a bite on the tongue is needed.
