A blend of Irish single malt and Irish grain whiskeys that were individually aged in ex-bourbon casks and then blended together to create this “rare” expression. Our Rare Irish Whiskey is produced using an Extended Double Distillation process for a much smoother product with distinctive character. The resultant, richer distillate is matured in single-use white oak ‘Bourbon’casks, among the most exceptional in the industry.

Citrus fruits, gooseberry and floral notes. Honeysuckle with a peppery overtone
Balanced and smooth. It has a rich malt taste with suggestions of citrus fruits and oak. There is a subtle hint of honey on the higher notes. The Wild Geese® Rare Irish is perfect for enjoying straight but also lends itself to a range of cocktail recipes.
Finish is long, sustained and loyal to the taste.
