Bushmills Millennium Malt Review

Bushmills Millennium Malt Review

Bushmills Millennium Malt is a series of single cask bottlings that came from whiskey distilled in 1975 and placed in ex-bourbon barrels. After being filled people were allowed to purchase their own barrel of whiskey which would be bottled in 2000. In a sense this would be an investment because once bottled it would be… Continue!

Midleton Dair Ghaelach Review

Midleton Dair Ghaelach Review

Midleton Dair Ghaelach (Dar Gaylock) takes its name from what it uses to finish this whiskey in – Irish Oak. That’s right, no sherry, port, rum or any other kind of casks traditionally used for aging or finishing whiskey in; this is a completely unique and innovative whiskey. I’m not just talking about unique for… Continue!

Green Spot Château Léoville Barton Review

Green Spot Château Léoville Barton Review

The first time I read the name Green Spot Château Léoville Barton I immediately thought of Kentucky. Being a bourbon fan, on top of a Scotch and Irish fan, I can’t help but think of KY when I see Barton, especially when it’s preceded by a word that looks so close to the pronunciation of… Continue!

Egan’s 10 Year Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review

Egan’s 10 Year Single Malt Irish Whiskey Review

Egan’s 10 Year Single Malt Irish Whiskey is neither a new whiskey nor a new brand in the Irish Whiskey vertical. The whiskey itself is sourced, most likely from Cooley, and the name is a re-birth of a brand that was around several decades ago. Though unlike a lot of the hokey whiskey stories that… Continue!

Teeling Irish Single Grain Whiskey Review

Teeling Irish Single Grain Whiskey Review

Teeling Irish Single Grain Whiskey is a good representation of a changing attitude toward what’s historically been called Irish Whiskey. A movement towards innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit of doing something different when it comes to the Irish Whiskey vertical. True Scottish Single Grain whisky has been around for a long time, so grain whiskey… Continue!

Blackadder A Drop of the Irish Review

Blackadder A Drop of the Irish Review

  Blackadder A Drop of the Irish is an undisclosed NAS Irish whiskey I tried at a recent Blackadder tasting. Being an Irish whiskey I made the conscious decision to try it first in the night to ensure I picked up all of the light subtle notes that usually accompany the vertical. After a round… Continue!

Single Cask Nation Cooley 13 Years Review

Single Cask Nation Cooley 13 Years Review

Single Cask Nation Cooley 13 Years is basically a cask strength, non-chill filtered, 13 year old Tyrconnell aged in a refill Oloroso cask and is an awesome Irish Whiskey for 2 main reasons. #1 it comes from a time when the Teelings ran the distillery (Beam bought it in 2011) and #2 it’s exactly the… Continue!

Jameson Cask Mates Stout Finish Review

Jameson Cask Mates Stout Finish Review

When I first heard about the Jameson Cask Mates Stout Finish I got excited. Not because I’m a huge stout fan, I’m not – though I do enjoy one from time to time, but because it was an innovative step from a major brand in a category that hasn’t really seen much innovation. On the whole… Continue!

The Wild Geese Rare Irish Whiskey Review

The Wild Geese Rare Irish Whiskey Review

The Wild Geese Rare Irish Whiskey is a blend of Irish single malt and Irish grain whiskeys that were individually aged in ex-bourbon casks and then blended together to create this “rare” whiskey. Cooley was the distiller, the process is standard and there’s no mention of it being non-chill filtered (safe to assume it was),… Continue!

2 Gingers Irish Whiskey Review

2 Gingers Irish Whiskey Review

2 Gingers Irish Whiskey “is a blended Irish whiskey that is inspired by the humor, passion and can-do attitude that come along with being Irish” according to Beam-Suntory. Though, as is often the case, the story behind that sound bite is far more interesting. The 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey is actually the brain child of… Continue!
