Irishman Scores high at IWSC!

This year at the IWSC, The Irishman Man Single Malt Scored 96 points and The Irishman the Harvest Scored 90 Points. Let us investigate what this means.

What is the IWSC?

The International Wine & Spirit Competition is an annual wine and spirit competition founded in 1969 by the German/British oenologist Anton Massel. Each year the competition receives entries from over ninety countries worldwide. The awards given by the competition are considered as high honours in the industry.

The Irishman Single Malt picked up a whopping ninety-six points and was the highest scoring non-age stated Irish whiskey of the year at the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC). This puts it as the fourth highest scoring Irish whiskey of the year, only being outperformed by whiskeys aged between 21-30 years old.

For a non-aged, stated whiskey to do so well is a testament to the liquid quality and further cements our position as being a leader in the Single Malt category.

This triple-distilled Single Malt paved the way, leading the Renaissance in rediscovering Irish Single Malts. It shaped a new future, taking us on a journey of discovery unlike any other. Matured in American Oak Bourbon and European Oak Oloroso Sherry casks to give exceptional flavour and complexity. Triple distilled and crafted from a mash bill made entirely of Irish barley. Rich, honeyed maltiness and soft notes of candied fruit come from the double maturation. The Irishman Single malt will be in the country in Q4.

The Irishman the Harvest also achieved high scores, achieving ninety points. To have The Irishman whiskeys entered pick up ninety points and above is an amazing result. The Harvest is a unique 70% single malt & 30% pot still blend.

The Harvest honours the contribution of the farming community in the whiskey-making process. Nose: Zesty spice, black pepper and peaches.

Palate: Pot still spice, dark chocolate and bourbon oak.

Finish: Oak and butterscotch. The Irishman is crafted from a mash bill of 100% Irish barley and surely to become a favourite dram. The Harvest is available in leading retailers and online stores.

The story behind the bottle:

Notable features of The Irishman's design is the inclusion of braille for the visually impaired. The braille is a personal tribute by Bernard Walsh to the memory of his own grandfather, Jack Walsh, whose loss of vision made a lasting impression on his grandson.
