About The Busker Triple Cask Triple Smooth Irish Whiskey
Founded in 1999 and formerly known as Walsh Whiskey Distillery, this Irish distillery was renamed the Royal Oak Distillery and opened its doors in June 2015 in County Carlow in Ireland’s Ancient East region – the center of Celtic Ireland. Based at Holloden House, an 18th century estate, all three styles of their hand-crafted The Busker Irish whiskey – pot still, malt and grain – are produced on-site under one roof. Working with both column and pot stills, their spirits are matured in a variety of barrels, including bourbon barrels from Kentucky, sherry butts from Jerez, rum barrels from the Caribbean and the rare Cantine Florio 1833 Sicilian marsala wine casks. Their collection features the Busker Triple Cask Triple Smooth expression and its components as standalones – Single Grain, Single Malt and Single Pot Still whiskey.
The Busker Triple Cask Triple Smooth expression is a premium whiskey blend featuring a Single Grain and a higher than usual percentage of Single Malt and Single Pot Still. As the name indicates, it’s matured and finished in three types of casks: bourbon casks, marsala casks and sherry casks. Bottled at 80 proof, this exceptionally smooth whiskey of a beautiful yellow gold color first seduces you with light aromas of tropical fruits and vanilla notes, developing a richer, darker palate with distinct notes of malt, sweet flavors and dark chocolate. Toffee fudge and cinnamon notes complement the rich body. The finish of this high-quality blend is balanced, mellow and sweet. Enjoy it however you want – neat, on the rocks or in a classic cocktail.

About Irish Whiskey
Contrary to popular belief that Scots invented whisk(e)y, Irish whiskey was mentioned almost a century before its Scottish brother.
Its origin comes from the perfume distilling monks who decided to tweak the recipe a bit, creating Irish whiskey.
Irish whiskey doesn’t have a lot of rules and regulations to be considered “pure” and can be made with various grains and processes, as long as it is aged for at least three years in wooden casks and has a max ABV of 94.8%.
