Walsh Whiskey, has today announced the launch of the oldest expression to date from its ‘The Irishman’ whiskey brand – which will be available exclusively from The Loop global travel retail outlets at Dublin and Cork Airports.
The Irishman 22 Year Old (49.3% ABV) is a cask strength Irish single malt whiskey, which was matured in American oak Bourbon barrels for 21 years, before being finished for 12 months in tawny Port barrels from Portugal’s Douro Valley.

This latest release is the first ever double-distilled expression in The Irishman range. Double distillation was a distillation style prevalent in Ireland centuries ago and The Irishman seeks to learn from the past to explore and challenge what Irish single malt means today, doing so through distillation methods, age, maturation and cask finishing.
The Irishman 22 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of dried fruit, candied orange, warm spices and dark chocolate.
Commenting on the launch, Bernard Walsh, Walsh Whiskey Managing Director, said: “I am delighted to have been able to source and finish this rare whiskey to my own taste. It takes The Irishman portfolio, which is dedicated to being single malt-led, to new ground. I know that the discerning clientele of The Loop in Dublin and Cork will savour the opportunity to experience and perhaps even share some of it with the best of friends and family.”
Limited to 600 bottles in 2023 and a further 600 bottles in 2024, The Irishman 22 Year Old, will be available later this from the The Loop at Dublin and Cork Airports, for a RRP of €500.00.
