The Family Reserve ex-rum cask is a celebration of the continued positive development of O'Connell Whiskey Merchants. This series of whiskeys focuses on rare and unique casks that fall outside the series of whiskeys the company has released to date. They represent some of the founder's favourite personal casks and provide further insight into the whiskeys Daithí O'Connell wishes to bring to market.
