McConnells Irish Whisky 700ml
Aged 5 years, fine blend of Irish Malt and Irish Grain Whisky is gently rested in Select Bourbon Casks bringing out beautiful overtones of vanilla sweetness with the quality of Irish in the background. This perfect blend between malted barely & grain has been carefully tried and tested resulting in a new finish to the iconic brand.
Nose: Sweet, spice, oak, with lingering ripe fruits.
Palate: Earthy fruits, Butterscotch & vanilla sweetness from the Bourbon casks, white pepper followed by an oak woodiness
Finish: The special handpicked ex-Bourbon barrels that finish the whisky, add the delicate and subtle sweetness. The Barrels provide a deep oak woodiness and light char to the finish.
In 1776, John and James McConnell opened their Belfast distillery where they crafted the first recorded Irish Whisky brand. McConnell's Irish Whisky was a popular export worldwide, including America, where it became popular from New York to California. However, due to Prohibition and Wars around the world, the impact was too much and the distillery was closed in the 1930s.
Today, the legendary McConnell's Irish Whisky is now restored to bar rooms and saloons from Belfast to Boston!
