Proximo Spirits announced the U.S. launch of The Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey. The product offers a balance of rich, dried fruits and subtle oak notes, with a smooth finish, the company says. Made with 100 percent malted barley that is triple distilled in copper pots, The Sexton is then aged in first, second and third-fill Oloroso Sherry casks. The whiskey is let to rest of four years, resulting in a smooth, light and fruit-forward spirit, it says. On the nose, marzipan, all spice and fruits follow aromas of nuts and dark chocolate. The palate reveals mellow honeyed malt and oils, and finally a gentle wood finish with mild sweetness that slowly fades, it adds. Available first exclusively in the United States, The Sexton is 40 percent alcohol by volume and has a suggested retail price of $27.99 for a 750-ml bottle.
