Irishman Founder's Bottling Note

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.

Irishman Founder's Reserve Reviews

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

My favorite "budget" Irish

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

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.

Picked this up after looking for something new. I could not agree more with the tasting notes. Its word perfect and makes thia a very, very enjoyable nip. Only got it yesterday and thinking about a second bottle already. Well worth it

Not bad, but i've had better.

Not a bad whiskey but I much preferred the Green Spot, which costs less !

fruity, easy to drink

Oily, rich mouth feeling. Not very spicy. Very ripe fruits and gluelike taste. Quite easy to drink.

The Breakfast WHiskey

My hubby and I brought one these bottles back from our honeymoon. I am just getting into good whiskey and have used this as a good beginner whiskey. It was billed to us as "The Breakfast Whiskey" because of the sweet nose (Syrup and fruit) and its incredibly smoothness. It has helped me edge into more robust whiskeys more easily. Great with a full Irish Breakfast for sure. I would highly recommend as a solid flavorful (but not flavored) whiskey.

Excellent Value!!

We often get $7 off in Virginia, which takes the price down to $23/750ml. Very smooth and definitely better than Jameson. Give it a try for an inexpensive everyday whiskey as you can't do better for $30.

Very well balanced,silky and long finish.

Not something I would personally drink. Recommend drinking without consuming anything else, as the flavours seem too subtle. It is a very balanced whisky and silky whisky, but doesn't deliver the wow effect. Great starter whisky, and I can imagine others loving this. Just a no-go if you mainly drink Islays.

Longest finish ever. Spicy and yards of fruit to end. Very smooth. Most interesting flavour. Priced right for an excellent dram.

Bargain and better

Delicious and priced right. In Michigan I got it for $25 out the door. It's always St. Patrick's Day in my liquor cabinet, but this was a nice find. It must have been mismarked. Toffifay and macadamia with a lingering pot still mouth feel. I'm going back for what's on the shelf tomorrow. I gave it 8, but 10 considering what I paid.

Wow! Bought this at my local liquor store a few days before St Patrick's day so they were out of all the typical Irish brands so I bought Irishman' s founders because nothing else they had looked any better. Had a shot tonight and it was great! It has a nice color and fragrance. Tastes like honey on the pallet with a very smooth finish. I will be buying a lot more of this as it was an exceptional deal for the money.

Ирішман один з самих молодих ірландських брендів. Відгуків про нього дуже мало. Купив по акції (0,7л 20$) Дуже сподобався аромат - суміш квітів, трохи цитрусу та яскраво виражений аромат бурбону. Смак мякий, приємно пється, солодкуватий. Післясмак дійсно довгий.
