Raise a glass to exuberant moments that become enduring memories with Ballyhoo Irish Whiskey, a 4-year old grain whiskey that is finished in port barrels.
Hand-bottled at 43% ABV at Connacht distillery, Ballyhoo Irish Whiskey embodies the best of the word’s meaning: an exclamation of triumph over the rival team; a rallying cry between lifelong friends; a toast to a difficult journey or a hard-fought victory. Ballyhoo begins as a sourced Irish grain whiskey that they bring to our distillery to further age and finish in used port barrels from Portugal. The time in the port barrel softens the grain whiskey and rounds out the flavour making Ballyhoo a real easy sipper.
They do not add artificial color or caramel, so the product remains quite light in appearance, but with some reddish undertones from the port. When you taste it, you get some nice notes of vanilla with some hints of spice and subtle wood from the bourbon casks and some sweetness from the port. It lingers long, warm and ever so smooth, despite being light in body. It is perfect neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail.
