Our Founder, Conor McGregor, and his team searched for a place and people that shared the same passion for Ireland and its whiskey. He found this at the oldest whiskey distillery on the Isle of Ireland and with his master distiller created a unique and special blend. Introducing Conor McGregors own brand of Irish Whiskey. Distilled, aged, & bottled in Ireland, Proper No. Twelve is smooth and balanced with a fine blend of golden grain and full flavored malted barley. Its aged a minimum of three years in bourbon barrel and offers hints of vanilla, honey-like sweetness and toasted wood. A proper salute to all, Proper No. Twelve pays homage to the founder, Conor McGregor, and his neighborhood of Crumlin, Dublin 12. It embodies their shared spirit of brotherhood, loyalty, and hard work. Proper No. Twelve’s global launch expression is a blend of the finest golden grain and single malt. It is produced in an area known for its rich soil and pure spring water.
The whiskey has a very pleasant golden color, like autumn straw, with a slight green hue creeping in on the edges. The bouquet shows the influence of bourbon casks adding some much-needed character with notes of vanilla and touch of charred oak. Hints of pear and jasmine are evident. The palate shows initial flavors that are light both on flavor and on texture, with hints of spiced apples and pears. Mid way through the alcohol starts to come through with texture across the mouth and a mild bitterness on flavor. Finish is complex and sophisticated yet smooth and approachable.
