Barr an Uisce Wicklow Rare Small Batch Blended Irish Whiskey
Regularly $49.99, Introductory Price $44.99

Last week we were tasted on this whiskey. The three of us who tried it – me, Dave and Wolfie – gave it a resounding thumbs up. This is super delicious, just in time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with. If you’re a whiskey enthusiast you won’t be disappointed.

Blend – 80% grain/20% ten year old malt. Matured in first fill Bourbon barrels for 4 years, finished in Oloroso casks for 6 months. 43% ABV

Pale gold in color. Aromas of vanilla, honey and baked fruits. Very smooth entry and then expansive with a mouth coating, oily texture. Mid palate shows a nuttiness and warmth with hints of raisin and plum. Long, clean finish with subtle marmalade notes and caramel.

“Made by Wicklow Hills Whiskey Company, cut with water from the family well, and aged in former Bourbon and oloroso Sherry barrels. The end result: a mild vanilla scent with hints of pineapple and lemon zest and a light, creamy palate. Look for vanilla, lemon cream and honey, finishing smoothly with ginger, cinnamon and cayenne heat. A splash of water teases out more vanilla, oak and a hint of cocoa sweetness.” 92 Points, Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast
