The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey launched in the US, inspired by the long tradition of whiskey making on the North Coast of Ireland and consciously aged for four years in former Sherry butts to achieve a depth of flavor from the wine-imbued barrel that surpasses its years. Unexpected for a young single malt, The Sexton offers a perfect balance of rich, dried fruits and subtle oak notes, with a smooth finish that leaves you wanting more.
The name ‘Sexton’ has been derived from the Medieval Latin word ‘sacristanus’, which means custodian of sacred objects and is used to describe the man who prepared the grave, the last man to witness the body before being laid to rest.
On the nose, marzipan, all spice and fruits follow aromas of nuts and dark chocolate. The refreshing palate reveals mellow honeyed malt and oils and finally a pleasant gentle wood finish with mild sweetness that slowly fades.
The Sexton is best enjoyed neat or poured over one large ice cube to savor the clean malt flavor followed by the complexity of spices, nuts and sweet oils.
The new Irish single malt is packed in a hexagonal black bottle disguising the rich Sherry tone liquid that lies deep within.
The new Irish single malt will be available at fine wine and spirits shops across the US for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $27.99.
