The nose on the Old Newry Irish Whiskey introduces Wood, Char and Vanilla from Ex-Bourbon Barrels, before opening-up to an almost floral sweetness. There are heather, honey and a delicate sweetness which will bring back memories of walking in the Mourne Mountains on an early Spring evening.
The flavour pays homage to the legacy of Matt D’Arcy and the long history of bonding and blending Irish Whiskey in the town of Newry. By skilfully bringing together the components of this whiskey you are invited to enjoy the layers of flavour which give a sweet, easily approachable drink. This may be enjoyed at any occasion and would not be out of place in a traditional Irish Pub or the most sophisticated Drawing Room. The vanilla sweetness gives way to a more rounded chocolate/ coffee note, which in turn is tempered by a spicy rye finish.
The pedigree of the components used to contribute to the long finish. Flavours stay on the palate much longer than a standard Blend.
