Earlier this week, premium spirits producer PROXIMO (best known as the owner of brands such as Bushmills whiskey or The Kraken rum) launched a new Irish whiskey expression called The Sexton in the US. Described as “an unexpected modern-day Irish whiskey for the everyman” and fully matured in Oloroso sherry casks over a period of four years, The Sexton is said to offer “a perfect balance of rich, dried fruits and subtle oak notes, with a smooth finish that leaves you wanting more”.
Overseas, the “smooth, light and fruit-forward spirit that is deep and memorable in character” will sell for the pretty affordable suggested retail price of US-$ 27.99. If, when and at what price point it will hit the stores on the old continent has yet to be made public. In the meantime, you can learn more about The Sexton by visiting the malt’s official website and following it on social media via the links below.
