The latest addition to the J.J. Corry Irish Whiskey portfolio, The Hanson is a Blended Grain Irish Whiskey and is a celebration of this often-overlooked spirit. The Hanson is named after J.J. Corry’s son in law who was a revenue man in the early 1900s known locally in Cooraclare as “The Gauger Hanson”.
It is a meticulous blend of just three casks of Irish Grain Whiskey from different distilleries. Four and ten years old and all ex-bourbon barrel aged, each cask was selected to build complexity upon the sweet and fruity qualities of the grain whiskey.
The result is a classically bright and fruit-forward Irish Whiskey which is mellowed with deep oak, warm vanilla and toasted notes. Rich and surprisingly complex, this sip finishes with a touch of spice and a hint of oiliness on the finish. The Hanson, bottled at 46% abv and without any artificial colouring or chill-filtration, is perfect enjoyed by itself or in a refreshing high ball.
