Proof66 Notes

The Irishman Founder's Reserve Irish whiskey is a blended whiskey of the traditional Irish pot still style whiskey with and single malt whiskey in ratios of 30% and 70% respectively. This is a blend of single malt styles without any grain (corn) whiskey so we've opted to list it as a single malt though it is technically a vatted malt. It is aged for an unspecified period of time prior to bottling in ex-bourbon casks.

EDIT 9/2/15: Dropped one star in line with my review of Bushmills 10yr SM. A bit of good water will open up the palate of this dram for the better."This is an excellent whisky. The nose is pleasant -fruity. It is a bit hot on the tongue, but again the flavours kick in with a mellow finish. I find the Bushmills Black Bush more flavorful, and somewhat sweeter. But, tastes in such matters are subjective. This whisky is frequently on sale, and somewhat cheaper than the Black Bush. I note that the website is a jewel - TheIrishmanwhiskey.com - and informative, with out much of the hype some other sites are wont to purvey. One can see the pricing of Irish whiskies - the time and cost of barreling for a period, some extended - and then wonder why some folk are willing to pay as much or more for a vodka, when it is retailed immediately from the still, without the cost of time and barreling. The "difference" is the hype. This is good Irish, although I lean toward the Bushmills. It is single malt + single pot run - all barley. I have only tried the Bushmills - Classic, Black Bush and the 10yr SM and then this Founders Reserve, although I'm sure there are others of merit. Obviously, this is a whisky that has recently received industry awards."
