The Planet Grape Wine Review
DescriptionThe Irishman Whiskey was founded in 1999 by Bernard and Rosemary Walsh with the mission to craft authentic, world-class spirits in Ireland. Ireland has a long history of whiskey distillation, dating back to 1558. The Walsh clan, the largest in Ireland, has been involved with whiskey production since 1870. Produced from only the purest ingredients, The Irishman Whiskey reflects centuries of experience and passion, resulting in a truly authentic Irish spirit.The Founders Reserve is a unique take on the old Irish Pot Still Whiskey and is the original and signature blend created by founder Bernard Walsh. It is a blend of two styles, Single Malt, and Single Pot Still. The proportions used are 70% Single Malt and 30% Single Pot Still. This is unusual in itself, as it is the only Irish blended whiskey to contain 100% whiskey distillates from the copper pot still and 0% Grain or Column still whiskey.
