Double Gold 2017 San Francisco International Spirits Competition
The Irish words “Barr an Uisce” literal English translation is “above the water”. It is also the Irish name given to Barraniskey, which is a town land set in the heart of the beautiful County of Wicklow, on the East Coast of Ireland. The Irish word “Uisce” or water in English, was used during the time Irish monks first distilled what we now know to be whiskey. They called it “Uisce Beatha” meaning Water of Life. Water from County Wicklow, the Garden of Ireland, is used to Cut our Whiskey.
Guaranteed 10 years in first-fill bourbon barrels.
"Lustrous, warm, mid-gold color. Aromas of vanilla, white chocolate and caramel (creme brulée) are confirmed on the palate. Spicy entry and then a broad, silky, creamy mouthfeel. Mid-palate opens to reveal tropical fruits, cinnamon, ginger and a distinct maltiness. Long in the finish with hints of toasted oak."
