A fabulous Irish blend of 70% single malt whiskey and 30% single pot still whiskey. After being triple distilled, the Irishman Founder's Reserve is aged in bourbon casks. Bernard Walsh, you should be proud!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Peach Campino sweeties (they also made the strawberries and cream sweets), apples and a soft, spicy hint of white pepper.

Palate Plenty rich with a glorious mouth-feel. More ripe fruits, paired with vanilla and cinnamon.

Finish Very long.

Overall Well rounded, finely balance.

Reviews for The Irishman Founder's Reserve
Very smooth
Very smooth and rounded flavour, hints of toffee, absolutely no harshness or burn.
Not a flavour bomb, but a good all round sipping whiskey. Great at the price point.

Very smooth
Whilst hardly the most complex whisky, it is extremely smooth, with no burn at all, goes down very easy, definitely with a try at this price point

Solid Irish daily sipper, can't compete with the big boys
Solid Irish daily sipper, can't compete with the big boys of Irish like Redbreast or Green Spot or Bushmills 10 in my opinion, but it is also a lower price point. Enjoyable for what it is.... decent Irish blend of single malt and pot still. Not one I would serve to impress, but at the end of a long day and not wanting a daily sipping bourbon or scotch, this is a solid choice.

Excellent daily dram
Here we have a very good example of what makes Irish whiskey great. It has lots of flavor but not so much it becomes overly challenging, it's nice n smooth without being overly expensive, it's a fine whiskey without being pretentious or snobby and to me that's what makes Irish whiskey great.On the nose you get apples, honey, toffee, and maybe a slight suggestion of meadow flowers. On the palate much of the same but with that barley, bananas foster note that lets you know there's some pot still whiskey in this. Actually tastes like mixing a good Irish pot still whiskey with a classic Highland single malt. Excellent value for the money this is. Slainte! The Sugarbear

Outstanding blend of single malt and single pot still (no cheap column still grain) at a very reasonable price.

Fantastic!
Just discovered this by way of a tasting of the brand’s various whiskies hosted by Bernard Walsh in Toronto and to my surprise I preferred the Founder’s reserve over the other more expensive offerings. I had tried the Writers Tears before and I found it to be pleasant but unremarkable. The Founder’s reserve seemed to tick all the boxes - approachable, well made, succulent and having been aged exclusively in ex bourbon casks had a purity of taste and aroma that I enjoyed immensely and compared very favourably to some of my favourite single malt scotch whiskies at a similar price point. Kudos to Bernard Walsh for creating a very special and affordable Irish whiskey that can hold its own against age statement scottish and Irish whiskies. An utterly delightful whiskey that is now my go to daily dram.
