The Busker debuts small batch Single Pot Still Whiskey

The limited edition whiskey is made in American bourbon casks and Oloroso sherry European oak butts

The limited edition whiskey showcases aromatic complexity with leathery tobacco notes, lingering spics and autumnal fruits

The multi-award-winning The Busker Irish Whiskey has launched its first small batch single pot still whiskey. Matured in American bourbon casks and finished in Oloroso sherry European oak butts, this first in a double-aged collection has been expertly crafted to showcase the pinnacle of Irish single pot whiskey. 

The Busker small batch single pot still whiskey is triple distilled and double matured in the ancient southeast at The Royal Oak in Co.Carlow, where each cask has been carefully selected by the master blender to create the unique flavour and deep golden amber colour, blending tradition with modern appeal. 

The limited edition whiskey showcases aromatic complexity with leathery tobacco notes, soft lingering spice, and sumptuous autumnal fruits – figs, sultanas, prunes, and damsons, bound together with exquisite caramelised balsamic tones. Resinous notes of distinguished oak and fragrant sandalwood create an elegant, smooth finish. 

Woody Kane, global brand ambassador, The Busker Irish Whiskey, said: “For this project, we focused on showcasing our meticulous cask selection process to enhance the final product. We started with our finest Pot Still whiskey matured in Bourbon casks and then transferred it to hand-selected, fresh Oloroso casks. 

“This process allows the whiskey to achieve a perfect harmony of spice and fruit, showcasing the best that maturation has to offer. The result is a beautifully bold yet reliably smooth whiskey that Pot Still enthusiasts are sure to love.”

The Busker Small Batch Single Pot Still Whiskey 46.3% 70cl RRP €54.95 and is available to purchase from retailers nationwide.
