The Renaissance of the lost art of Whiskey bonding.

There used to be a special kind of art in Ireland, art that faded away a century ago. It's a craft of Whiskey bonding, a traditional business of sourcing casks all over the Island, aging and blending the Spirits for local Whiskey lovers. Hundreds of regional and local styles of Whiskey emerged between the 19th century and 1930s. But after a sad hiatus, the Whiskey bonding is back!

J.J. Corry, established in 2015, sources new make Whiskey from various distilleries in Ireland and matures it on the farm in Cooraclare. While Whiskey comes of age, J.J. Corry sources and blends rare mature Whiskey and creates unique house styles. One of them is 'The Gael', a classic blend of Single Malts, aging from 7 to 26 years old. The blend was created with some flavor-matching magic and traditional knowledge. That also means no artificial nonsense and no chill filtering. The result is a small batch of an award-winning Irish Whiskey that is perfect either neat or in a cocktail (Tuppence a Pound, if we may suggest one) with its bergamot aroma and fruity flavor.

There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first spirits ever made.

Christopher,
I brought a bottle to my friends birthday party and it is a good thing I brought an extra bottle just in case. it was the hit of the party.

so, so

Antti,
It is an outstanding, balanced, Blended Irish Single Malt Whiskey with an aromatic birth; while an oily life leads to a balanced death of medium length with minerality, notes of apples & dried grapefruit.

Michael,
I really like this!! It’s different, the citrus notes make this one stand out.
 
James
James,
Much in the way of citrus, with a tad of sweetness and spice to finish it off. Nicely done.
 
Dan
Dan,
I love the story behind this whiskey and the history of whiskey bonding in Ireland. The nose hit me with orchard fruit - subtle apples and pears. The flavor was initially reserved, but once it opened up it was fantastic. The orchard fruit appeared in the flavor too, candy corn, slight cinnamon. Really nice. I enjoyed this quite a bit!
 
Christopher
Christopher,
I was really pleased with this whiskey. So much so, I have ordered multiple bottles for friends so they can taste the amazing blend J.J. Corry put together in the Gael. I can't wait to try their new single malt, the "Flintlock" that Flaviar has as a wishlist item under the J.J. Corry brand.
 
Greg
Greg,
I’m giving this a 6 because it doesn’t taste at all like whiskey. That’s not to say it tastes bad, but it’s supposed to be an Irish whiskey for God’s sake, it needs some kick! This tastes more like a fruity mixed drink, which is ok, if that’s what you’re looking for.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Love the finish on this! Lemon/citrus on the nose, a little harsh on the palate (which is why it doesn’t get a 10), but then finished with an oily sweet peach/apricot flavor that lasts for days.

Like the citrus notes, not as smooth as some. Hint of a bite similar to a bitey rye.
 
Paul
Paul,
Good nose, smooth taste and nice palate but not a big fan of the flavor turn it takes on the finish, and overall nothing that truly distinguishes it, but still, very smooth and good overall
 
Lorraine
Lorraine,
Omg, this is outstanding
 
Amanda
Amanda,
Flavor wheel is pretty spot on for this one. Smells like lemon curd (citrus/sweet) with a hint of pepper on the first sip. Smooth to drink with a subtle but oily finish. Sticks to your tongue for a while.
