JACK RYAN SINGLE MALT - 12 Year Old
12 Year Old – Jack Ryan Single Malt Irish Whiskey 46% has been aged for 12 years, with no chill filtration, allowing the true flavours of the whiskey to be retained. The Whiskey has been matured in ex-bourbon barrels hand-picked by the family themselves, to deliver a unique taste. The golden amber glow and nose of sweet, oaky vanilla, sets you up for a delicious mouthful of silky, honey sweetness with a long, warm- hearted, lingering, spicy finish.
