Tipperary – Watershed
Tipperary Boutique Distillery – Watershed has won a Double Gold medal from SFWSC! “The San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC) has become the most respected and influential spirits competition in the world.”
“We are extremely humbled and honored to have won a Double Gold medal from the prestigious SFWSC. We knew going in that it was a home run, so I’m glad that the judges agreed.”
~ Sam Filmus, President of GRC Imports
Only six first-fill bourbon casks are chosen for each batch of Watershed, carefully selected for quality by the Malt Master, Stuart Nickerson. After being cut to 47% with Ballindoney water, every bottle is numbered individually, so each one is special.
Nose: Opens with strong vanilla and sweet fruit notes, followed by hints of grain.
Palate: Black pepper rises on the palate, overtaken by vanilla fudge and just a trace of raisins.
Finish: The smooth finish is warm and comforting, honey on hot buttered toast.
