The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey
The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog in New York City is home to the largest collection of Irish whiskey in North America, so it was only a matter of time before it got its very own Irish whiskey! By teaming up with Darryl McNally, master distiller at The Dublin Liberties, they have created this excellent expression. It's based around a 5 year old whiskey matured in ex-bourbon barrels, which has then been finished in “half-sized” virgin American oak barrels.
Nose: Cedar, toasted brown sugar, apricot-filled pastries.
Palate: Caramel and vanilla sit up front, with notes of nutmeg, milky coffee and macadamia developing in the background.
Finish: Lingering waxy fruit and a tickle of black pepper.
