The Irishman cask strength is Ireland's most exclusive whiskey. Winner of the 2010 Gold Medal in the Premium Irish Whiskey category, the Irishman Rare Cask Strength is an ultra premium Irish whiskey. Distilled 3 times and carefully aged in individually chosen oak casks. Bernard Walsh, founder of the Hot Irishman Company, has personally selected the three best casks in the cellar in order to produce this authentic and unique Irish whiskey at cask strength. It is only available in strictly limited quantities as only a few casks of the finest distillates are selected each year. There are only 2,850 bottles produced in 2010 with an average cask strength just over 56% ABV. Each bottle is individually numbered, signed and dated, then presented in an elegant wood box.
