Unlike standrad Irish whiskeys, this is a single malt matured in ex Bourbon casks.
From the Whiskey Reviewer, “Wonderfully light creamy mouthfeel with notes of light lemon and ginger on a vanilla base. You may also pick up some light fresh fruit flavors. The finish is satisfyingly long with pepper and carmelized oak. It’s a spicey finish with the entire experience located near the back of the mouth. This is an easy drinking very enjoyable Irish whiskey”.
