The Irishman Founder’s Reserve - Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish - in time for Christmas!

October 20, 2020

Walsh Whiskey announce the timely release of an exclusive, limited-edition release of The Irishman Founder’s Reserve – Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish to ease us through the festive season. This is the first time The Irishman Founder’s Reserve has been finished in Oloroso sherry casks. The previous limited-edition finishes have been Florio Marsala and Chairman’s Reserve Rum cask finishes.


The Irishman Founder’s Reserve – Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish is triple-distilled entirely in copper pots and aged in American Oak Bourbon Barrels before being finished in Oloroso casks for an additional 12 months and bottled at 46% ABV. The release is limited to just 9 sherry butts, which will yield just over 8,000 bottles. The casks are being distributed to a limited number of markets including the USA, Canada, Russia, Ireland, and a select number of other key regions. The recommended retail price is $99.99 / €75.

Announcing the limited-edition release, Bernard Walsh, creator of The Irishman range of whiskeys and Managing Director of Walsh Whiskey, said: “This decadent Oloroso sherry finish to Founder’s Reserve, which is our original whiskey, combines to deliver Christmas in a bottle. It is meant to be a treat to accompany the rich baking and cooking of the festive season, and of course to either reflect on the day or to share with your nearest and dearest. I hope you will join me in savouring a taoscán (dram) of this limited edition over the Winter months.”

Tasting Notes from Walsh Whiskey
Nose: Nutty Oloroso Sherry notes mingle with the delicate aromas of dried fruit, tangerine and dark chocolate.
Taste: Hints of toasted oak and velvet spice add a sumptuous warmth to this powerfully complex expression.
Finish: A truly unforgettable dram.
