The Irishman Single Malt Single Tasting Notes

  • Taste: Sweet and nutty with marzipan and warm honeyed malt at the end
  • Finish: Long malty finish with a hint of sweet wood.

Stuart Says

I have to admit that this is not a whiskey that I know well, although I am very familiar with the Irishman’s close Single Malt relations from Bushmills. I have awarded a Two Pooka rating based on a quick and limited informal tasting when I was a guest of another whiskey aficionado, but will review this once I have conducted a more formal tasting of the Irishman and other Walsh whiskey offerings in coming months.
