Walsh Whiskey launches its The Irishman Vintage Cask 2022 whiskey

Walsh Whiskey, based in Carlow, South West Dublin, Ireland, has The Irishman’s portfolio focused on the Irish single malt among its offerings. Considered a tip of the hat to Ireland’s so-called “Golden Era of Irish Whiskey” in the 19th century, the latest release to emerge from this range is the 2022/14 edition of The Irishman Vintage Cask.

The 2022 The Irishman Vintage Cask, according to its makers, is a 6,100-bottle worldwide release that consists of a blend of triple-distilled and aged Irish single malt and single pot still whiskeys. JThe barrels used for this annual vintage are hand-selected by The Irishman founder, Bernard Walsh, with this year’s release being unchill-filtered and bottled at 54.9% ABV.

“The Irishman Cask Strength Series is an annual celebration of one of Irish whiskey’s greatest traditions,” Walsh said in a prepared statement. “A revival, brought back by The Irishman in 2008, which helps to highlight a style of whiskey at the heart of the golden age of Irish whisky. The 2022 vintage of The Irishman Vintage Cask is a whiskey full of character, strength, depth and body, but with a surprising sweetness that ripples on the tongue.
