Walsh Whiskey Releases The Irishman Founders Reserve Finished in Oloroso Sherry Casks
Walsh Whiskey has announced an exclusive, limited-edition release of The Irishman Founder’s Reserve, finished in Oloroso sherry casks.
It is the first time The Irishman Founder’s Reserve, a blend of single malt & single pot still premium whiskeys, has been finished in Oloroso sherry casks. Previous limited-edition finishes have seen Florio Marsala and Chairman’s Reserve rum cask finishes.
The Irishman Founder’s Reserve – Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish is triple-distilled entirely in copper pots and aged in American oak bourbon barrels before being finished in Oloroso casks for an additional 12 months and bottled at 46% ABV.
The release is limited to just 9 sherry butts, which will yield just over 8,000 bottles. The casks are being distributed to a limited number of markets including the USA, Canada, Russia, Ireland, and a select number of other key regions. The recommended retail price is €75 and will be available on DrinkHero.
Announcing the limited-edition release, Bernard Walsh, creator of The Irishman range of whiskeys and Managing Director of Walsh Whiskey, said: “This decadent Oloroso sherry finish to Founder’s Reserve, which is our original whiskey, combines to deliver Christmas in a bottle. It is meant to be a treat to accompany the rich baking and cooking of the festive season, and of course to either reflect on the day or to share with your nearest and dearest. I hope you will join me in savouring a sample (dram) of this limited edition over the Winter months.”
