Flaming Pig is the brainchild of Joey and Flor, two drinks industry fellas from Ireland who saw a gap in the market for an uncomplicated Irish whiskey that delivered more taste and character than the run-of-the-mill brands.

Flaming Pig is a blend of Irish single malt and grain whiskies, made richer and spicier, with added smokiness, from intense barrel charring. Nice. 

While we respect heritage and tradition, we're not too precious about all that (we’ve only been around for five years after all). The way we see it, good whiskey is meant to be enjoyed, not examined.

So if you’re really not fussed about still size and blending ratios, but just want a really sound Irish whiskey, with some proper flavour, you’ve come to the right place.

After blending, Flaming Pig whiskey is matured in our intensely charred barrels for 6 months, then cut with pure spring water to bottling strength. The woody, caramelised flavour from the barrels means it's as easy to drink as bourbon, but still distinctively Irish.

 

Tasting Notes

The first scents on the nose are really sweet. Some vanilla, caramel and toasted oak notes prevail, a clear influence of the Bourbon casks. They are followed by smooth fruity scents, mostly peaches and apples. On the palate, the blend is soft and mellow while strong in the aftertaste. There are vanilla and hazelnut notes that slowly blend with apple pie notes and touches of peaches in syrup. Finally, the sweetness becomes a dry and spicy touch. The finish is medium going to lengthy. It highlights pepper notes, with sweet and mellow touches on the background.
