Chapel Gate has released JJ Corry the Battalion, an Irish whiskey blend finished in tequila and mezcal casks.

JJ Corry The Battalion began with nine-year-old grain whiskey aged in ex-Bourbon casks poured into mezcal and Tequila casks and malt whiskey from Bourbon barrels into mezcal casks, then – after maturing for seven months – a blend of grain whiskey matured in Tequila and mezcal casks was combined with the mezcal-influenced malt whiskey.

The finished product is JJ Corry The Battalion whiskey blend [60% nine-year-old grain whiskey and 40% 13-year-old malt whiskey] that was bottled at 41% alcohol by volume [82 proof] and is said to contain notes of agave.

The name is in honor of the Battalion San Patricos – a group of Irish men who fought for Mexico in the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848.

Only 700 bottles of JJ Corry The Battalion are being made available for $73 per 500ml bottle.
