One of my favorites

Noel,
Smooth but too sweet
 
ALEXANDER
ALEXANDER,
It was somewhat quirky in my view. The butterscotch is almost overpowering to the nose. Tasting notes of banana and other fruits. A bit too sweet for my taste. But a smooth finish, and an enjoyable dram if this is what you're looking for
 
Ron
Ron,
I was surprised at how good this is. Smooth, flavorful and nice finish. I was a bourbon guy and may become and Irish whiskey guy.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Smooth and silky. Drinks easy and perfect pair neat with an after dinner cigar. Lacks complexity but you won’t go wrong on drinkability
 
John
John,
Great value for the price. If you enjoy Irish whiskey this is definitely one to get.
 
Huat
Huat,
Pretty smooth on the nose with fruitiness on the palate. Medium finish. A good daily whisky for the price.
 
Ben
Ben,
It feels like this whisky has music for those who listen to its poetry.
Ben
Ben,
Whiskey* ooh, oopsy!
Tyler
Tyler,
Whoa this is sweet on the nose, butterscotch candy and capri sun. The palate isn't too complex with raisins and caramel. Not much else, and there's not much bite. This is very one note, and overpriced IMO.
 
Justin
Justin,
Sharp and muted flavor profile.
 
Ken
Ken,
Love it...my go too daily drink!
 
Larry
Larry,
Very smooth but still lively enough to excite my palate.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Dried fruit and raisins on the nose. Oatmeal and brown sugar on the nose. At this price point, Roe & Co is the better bet. All in all, a solid dram at $30
 
Jebb
Jebb,
I'm not big on sherry barrel finish. Might be good for others
 
BRUCE
BRUCE,
Nice , sweet , and smooth = can't go wrong at this price!!
 
Jim
Jim,
Definitely deep fruit in the nose with a nice lingering nutmeg. Smooth and honey taste with a definite spice finish. Good sipping whiskey.
 
Ben
Ben,
This is honestly what I look for in my whiskies. Smooth, sweet and has a pleasant finish. For an Irish whiskey in this price range you get a tasty drink indeed. For fans of Jameson and Tullamore Dew. Good working class whiskey!!!
 
James
James,
For the price, not bad. But overall, just mediocre. Good for casual sipping. Sweet, not much complexity and a short lasting finish
 
Bill
Bill,
A bit too sharp for me.
 
Dalton
Dalton,
Very good sipping whiskey, warm, nice and smooth flavor, great price, will definitely keep on hand.
 
Tara
Tara,
So seriously...... where has this been? I've apparently been drinking the wrong irish whiskey for two decades........ I've drank tullemore dew, several different Jameson's, a few I can't even remember the name, writers tears(only recently.... also very good) and now this. My hubby and I just did a side by side of this with writers tears. For me, both are exceptional easy drinking Irish whiskeys. I'd be incredibly hard pressed to pick one!
 
Javier
Javier,
It's sweet upfront and slightly spicy on the backend. Taste doesn't linger but falls flat pretty quickly. It's alright for folks just starting on their whisky journey but I wouldn't revisit it anytime soon.
 
Craig
Craig,
This may be heretical to Irish whiskey connoisseurs, but I believe I enjoy this more than the Redbreast 12 Cask Strength! (. . . although probably not more than the regular Redbreast 12)
 
Chris
Chris,
We loved this one.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Overwhelming cinnamon
 
Sean
Sean,
Very smooth
 
David
David,
Great neat. I'm no expert, but the flavor I got was oatmeal with milk and LOTS of brown sugar. Carmel and butterscotch as well. Really enjoying it.
 
Dean
Dean,
A very nice whiskey for the price. You can definitely get the hints of butterscotch and maraschino cherry. The after taste is a pleasant ginger spice. Well worth the money.
 
Mark
Mark,
Very smooth and light. Excellent flavor, very clean a bit fruity. I could have used just a little more flavor.
 
William
William,
Nose has a hint of earthiness that promises a smooth and balanced taste. Rather than caramel or honey, vanilla and dried fruit sweetness. Deeper into your dram, these flavors expand, to make it very hard to be patient between sips.
 
BOB
BOB,
Wonderfully smooth whiskey with cherry and other fruit flavors up front and a nice sweet finish. No burn at all on the back end, I'd imagine this would be a great entry whiskey for those looking to start out.
 
David
David,
Sweet, savory, clean
 
Neal
Neal,
Great sipping whiskey with no bite and delicious flavor
 
William
William,
I most appreciated the smoothness...nice aroma no 'bite' aftertaste
 
John
John,
This and Teeling small batch are my go-to recommendations for value Irish whiskey purchases. Smooth, with a fruity after taste that is great neat with a dash of water as it is mixed with Ice and ginger ale (a blasphemy back home but a delight I enjoy in the US).

Smooth..Creamy... Spicy....Fruity.... Sooo good for the price
 
Ken
Ken,
Very smooth, and very rich. tasted it in Glendalough, and I felt like I was tasting the hills. :-)
 
Jon
Jon,
Lots of flavor, vanilla and sweet fruit create interest and make this Irish whiskey drinkable for its age.
 
Heather
Heather,
Loved it!
