The Flintlock Batch No. 3 is a marriage of six hand-selected Irish Single Malt casks. It is a statement of independence and a nod to the creators' role as a Bonder in the Irish Whiskey revival. Named after a pistol found hidden in the rafters of the makers' 17th-century tasting room which was dated back to the 1790s, a time of freedom fighting in Ireland.
Each cask was chosen based on its unique flavour and attributes. Varying in age (the youngest is 15 years old), they first blended to develop a vatting which perfectly represents their juicy fruit house style, before marrying the flavours in a Moscatel Sherry Bitt, to harmonise and impart complexity, giving the whiskey a rich, grapelike and floral character.
