This Irish Whiskey is a malt and grain blend that was first aged in Bourbon barrels and then re-casked into first fill Sherry barrels. This has a big wood and Sherry influence.
On the nose you can get dried orange, pineapple and lemon peel to start, followed by mellow coffee, chocolate biscuit and a hint of gingerbread. The palate has a big dried fruit and oak char palate initially which develops into raisins, juicy citrus, vanilla and red apple. Pearse Cooper’s Select has a finish of honeyed gingerbread, sweet stewed pineapple, apricot and oak spice.
