The barrels of this bottling have been in the basements of Temple Bar for over a decade, waiting for bottling. In 2004, the single malt Irish whiskey was distilled and stored in copper pot stills. Triple distillation is quite common for Irish whiskey and was also used for Temple Bar 12 years of whiskey. Tom Cleary had a clear vision of his whiskey and personally selected the ex-bourbon barrels. This was the only way to guarantee the high quality of his single malts. In 2016, this Temple Bar was bottled and joined the other bottlings of the bar.
In addition to the 12-year-old whiskey, there is an even older 15-year-old Temple Bar single malt and a younger, 10-year-old. For the small budget, a traditional whiskey was made in the Temple Bar, which is blended from various Irish whiskeys. The 12y.o. Whiskey has a small special position in the series, because its taste is really exceptionally round and harmonious. If you have ever been to the temple bar or are planning to visit it, we clearly recommend that you try the Temple Bar 12 years of Irish whiskey. Of course, the other bottlings of the house also taste excellent, but we particularly liked them.
