This beast of a dram is the highest-proof Irish Whiskey on the market at the time of its release.
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.
Their Killowen Distillery might be the smallest in Ireland, but size only matters to a point. This does mean that they work with other independent distilleries when blending their juice. The Blender's Cut is a cask-strength version of their Two Stacks Whiskey that comes from Dundalk's Great Northern Distillery. It's a blend of malt, grain, and pot-still Whiskey, 5 juices in total, aged in virgin oak, ex-Bourbon, as well as Sherry casks. Bottled at 130 proof, it's one beastly and rich blend with a complex balance of spice, fruit, and a touch of peat.
