Tipperary Boutique Selection Watershed, 47% abv
A small batch release limited to 1916 bottles.
"Watershed" is the first whisky to be cut to 47% with water from Ballindoney farm in Tipperary. The land at Ballindoney has been farmed by our co-founding family, the Ahearns, for as long back as parish records are available. Lying in Ireland's Golden Vale, the farmland is fresh and green in spring, maturing to glorious golds as crops ripen for harvest.
Only six first-fill bourbon casks are chosen for each batch of Watershed, carefully selected for quality by our Malt Master, Stuart Nickerson. After being cut to 47% with our Ballindoney water, we number every bottle individually, so each one is special. Try Watershed, taste Tipperary.
The nose opens with strong vanilla and sweet fruit notes, followed by hints of grain. Black pepper rises on the palate, overtaken by vanilla fudge and just a trace of raisins. The smooth finish is warm and comforting, honey on hot buttered toast.
