A unique and complex 5-part blend of grain, pot-still, and malt Irish Whiskey.

Two Stacks was launched in 2020 by a group of 3 friends ― Shane McCarthy, Donal McLynn, and Liam Brogan ― who had spent 6 years working together in the craft beverage importing and distribution business. With the Irish Whiskey Renaissance well underway, they deemed the time was ripe for a proper Whiskey brand ― a contemporary brand, built upon Irish Whiskey's rich heritage. They borrowed the name from the two chimney stacks of the Dundalk distillery that were so tall that seamen used them as a navigation point.

They have their own distillery, but as it's the smallest in Ireland, they source Whiskey from other independent distilleries for their blends. The First Cut is an approachable 86-proof dram that comes from Dundalk's Great Northern Distillery. It comprises light & dark grain Whiskeys (80%), double & peated Malts (12%), and pot-still Whiskey (8%). Each of these brings a desirable component to the profile that has spice, fruity esters, and a touch of peat. Oh, and this one might actually be the first 5-part blend in Ireland!

Really mild nose with cereal and some nuttiness. There is spice, fruit, lots of cereal flavor, but it's not complex. Long spicy finish.
