Walsh Whiskey Releases 13th Edition Of The Irishman Vintage Cask

Walsh Whiskey has released the 2021 vintage of The Irishman Vintage Cask, a rare cask strength Irish whiskey.

The 2021 vintage is the 13th release since 2008, when it became the first triple-distilled Cask Strength Irish whiskey released in over half a century. 

The Irishman Vintage Cask marries aged single malt & aged single pot still, matured in first-fill bourbon casks, non-chill-filtered and bottled at 54.8% ABV, with a taste that carries a subtle nuttiness that builds slowly, with hints of clove and nutmeg.

Bernard Walsh, CEO, Walsh Whiskey, commented on the taste of their latest release, saying “We have built a strong following for our Cask Strength vintages over the years, with many choosing to develop collections. The 2021 vintage has decadent notes of candied orange and cherries to the fore, while a subtle nuttiness builds slowly on the palate.


The Irishman Vintage Cask 2021 is available in Travel Retail and a selection of countries including the USA, Ireland, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Holland, Japan, Poland, Russia, and the UK.

Each bottle is presented in an elegant wooden cask, uniquely numbered, and with a dated certificate signed by Bernard Walsh, the co-founder of Walsh Whiskey and creator of The Irishman. 

An additional 750 bottles were added to the non-US markets assignment after the first batch of 1,500 were bottled and labelled. The numbers of the extended run of bottles run from bottle number 1,501 to 2,250.
