The result is a highly aromatic spirit with the weight, richness, and complexity of its forbearers. In seeking to recreate a whiskey of another time and place, we feel we have created a spirit which speaks meaningfully to its two provenances; Ireland of yore, and the green hills of Oregon where it has taken a foothold after 150 years of migration. Like so many flavors from our heritage, it truly brings the old country.

Made from an Irish whiskey recipe from 1865 ("dug up" by David Wondrich), with malt, raw barley, rye malt and rolled oats, distilled in an alembic pot still. Amber with a distinct red/pink cast to it. Very fruity nose-greengage plum, mulberry, sweet orange - with creamy vanilla. Taste of sweet cereal with a firm bitter keel; the fruit returns as an echo in the finish. A very craft beer-like whiskey; challenging, interesting, unexpected. A bit brash, but worth investigating. - LB
