Walsh Whiskey Launches Its 2022 The Irishman Vintage Cask Whiskey

| March 28, 2022

Walsh Whiskey, based in Carlow, Southwest of Dublin, Ireland, has among its offerings the Irish single malt focused The Irishman portfolio. Said to be a tip of the hat to Ireland’s so-called “Golden Era of Irish Whiskey” in the 19th century, the latest release to emerge from this line up is the 2022/14th edition of The Irishman Vintage Cask.

The 2022 The Irishman Vintage Cask, according to those behind it, is a global release of 6,100 bottles that consists of a blend of triple distilled, aged Irish single malt and single pot still whiskeys. The casks used for this annual vintage are hand-selected by The Irishman’s founder Bernard Walsh, with this year’s release being non-chill filtered and bottled at 54.9% ABV.

“The Irishman Cask Strength series is an annual celebration of one of Irish Whiskey’s greatest traditions,” said Walsh in a prepared statement. “A revival, brought back by The Irishman in 2008, that helps to showcase a style of whiskey from the heart of Irish whiskey’s golden era. The 2022 vintage of The Irishman Vintage Cask  is a whiskey full of true strength of character, fortitude, depth and body, but with a surprising mellowness that ripples on the tongue.”
