"A well-balanced whiskey, dances effortlessly between sweet & spicy, possessing a full, well rounded mouthfeel that lingers lightly on the tongue." -Head Distiller, Brian Taft

Richly spiced aromas lead into a smooth, luxurious palate that sinks into flavors of vanilla, dried apricot and dried date. Adding water unlocks more vanilla and sweet spices like clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. This is a big, mouthfilling whiskey to sip with a cube of ice or consider as a dessert pairing. -K.N.

This whiskey from Drumshanbo was crafted from a complex mash of malted Irish barley, un-malted Irish barley, and Irish Barra oats. Triple distilled in copper pots and matured for at least five years in first-fill bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, Drumshanbo's Single Pot Still dishes up cereal and oak notes from nose to finish, with a wisp of savory sherry cask influence peppered throughout. The bourbon barrel flavor shines through on the palate, adding layers of caramel, chocolate, and spice. -T.M.

After decades of consolidation, Ireland is experiencing a craft whiskey renaissance. Founded in 2014, The Shed Distillery delivers the first whiskey from the western province of Connacht in over a century. Polished creamy sweetness and aromatic spices herald this striking dram, which has been triple-distilled and then matured in first-fill bourbon and oloroso sherry casks. Aromas of caramel, brioche, satsuma, and dried apricot draw you in, ushering in a luscious palate of pear, apple, and freewheeling spices bolstered by dried citrus, lime, and toasted coconut.
