Carlow, Ireland – 23 March 2022: Walsh Whiskey has released the 2022 vintage of The Irishman Vintage Cask, a rare cask strength Irish whiskey expression. This year’s vintage is limited to 6,100 bottles worldwide, with 1,200 bottles (25.4 U.S. Fl. Oz./ 750 ml) assigned to the United States and 4,900 bottles (23.7 U.S. Fl. Oz./ 700 ml) for the Rest of the World. The 2022 vintage is the 14th release since 2008, when it became the first triple-distilled Cask Strength Irish whiskey released in over half a century.
The Irishman 2022 Vintage Cask is a renowned blend of triple distilled aged Single Malt and aged Single Pot Still whiskey. The exceptional casks used for this annual vintage are hand-selected by The Irishman’s founder Bernard Walsh. There’s a new limited release every year, so you’ll never experience the same whiskey twice. The 2022 vintage is non chill-filtered and bottled at 54.9% ABV. The recommended retail price is €130/ US$140.
Describing the 14th edition of The Irishman Vintage Cask, Bernard Walsh said:
“The Irishman Cask Strength series is an annual celebration of one of Irish Whiskey’s greatest traditions. A revival, brought back by The Irishman in 2008, that helps to showcase a style of whiskey from the heart of Irish whiskey’s golden era. The 2022 vintage of The Irishman Vintage Cask is a whiskey full of true strength of character, fortitude, depth and body, but with a surprising mellowness that ripples on the tongue.”
The Irishman Vintage Cask 2022 is available in Travel Retail and selected countries globally, and now comes in a stunning double-doored presentation case.
The full range of The Irishman super-premium whiskeys is now available in the redesigned packaging, which was announced earlier this year. The new livery has been extended to The Irishman – Caribbean Cask Finish, The Irishman 12-Year-Old Single Malt and The Irishman 17-Year-Old Single Malt, alongside The Irishman – Vintage Cask 2022. The new branding first appeared on The Irishman – The Harvest and The Irishman – Single Malt, which were launched in early February.
