Jack Ryan – Finisher’s Touch – 12 Year Old finished in Madeira
That final year spent in Madeira casks did an already great Whiskey good.
With 6 generations of the Ryan family being involved in the Whiskey business, they have seen and done it all — from owning public houses to farming the barley and distilling the Spirits. Eunan Ryan started working in the family pubs at the age of thirteen — obviously, this was before the advent of pesky child labor laws. But today he runs the family Whiskey businesses, along with his Jack Ryan Whiskey Company in Dublin. They’ve already struck Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and considering the tough competition they were up against, that’s a mighty-fine accomplishment indeed!
Single Malt Irish Whisky
12 Year Old
|NOSE||A pleasant citrusy sweetness greets the nose with orange, wood tannins, and marmalade.|
|PALATE||There’s more of that citrusy goodness on the palate with blood orange, clementine, and tangerine. It’s woody as well as woodsy with some forest notes in there. Honey and a hint of ginger balance things nicely.|
|Finish||It finishes long and satisfying with those orange notes ringing out and some autumn leaves making an entry. There’s a touch of malt in there as well.|
