John L. Sullivan Irish Whiskey

Small batch: aged in "single use" American Bourbon Barrels

John L. Sullivan Irish Whiskey...$19.99

"... is a special, small batch blend, aged 4 to 10 years in Single Use Bourbon Barrels. It consists of only the finest, individually selected barrels, pulled for their unique character detected during the aging process. John L. Sullivan is smooth, yet at the same time rich, complex & balanced. It is layered with hints of oak, vanilla, spice, citrus, malt, and honey. The finish is long and has a silky bourbon character from the barrels. This special bottling by the Cooley Distillery pays tribute to an Irish American legend & to all the descendents of the hard working Irish immigrants who came to America and helped to build it into the great nation it is today. Aging the whiskey in Single Use American Oak Bourbon Barrels, honors John L. Sullivan & the Irish immigrants, as they too were the ‘Product of Ireland’, but ‘Aged in America’."
