An exceptional, blended Irish Whiskey that express what J.J. Corry is all about.

Founded in 2016 by Louise McGuane, Chapel Gate Whiskey states that they were founded to bring back "the lost art of Irish Whiskey Bonding." Back in the day, Irish Whiskey distillers "just" distilled. Local shops, farmers, and entrepreneurs would show up with containers, fill them up, and take them back to their local towns. They would then age it on-site in a variety of casks — some new, some used, sometimes whatever they had on hand — and then sell by the glass or by the bottle. This was called "Whiskey Bonding," and it’s what Chapel Gate Whiskey is doing to great acclaim.

"The Gael" Whiskey is named after a bicycle invented company namesake J.J. Corry. But J.J. Corry 'The Gael' Batch No. 2 Irish Whiskey is quadratic blend of four Irish Whiskeys — 5% twenty-six yea-old Single Malt aged in Sherry casks, 27.5% eleven year-old Single Malt, 27.5% fifteen year-old Single Malt, and 40% seven year-old single grain. Batch No. 1 of this recipe took the Gold medals at both the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the Irish Whiskey Awards. Batch No. 2 is even richer, serving a delicious mission statement for the J.J. Corry style of Whiskey-making.


Smartass Corner:
The "J.J. Corry" brand on the label refers to a local Whiskey Bonder in County Clare, Ireland. He was an entrepreneur and innovator who started his Whiskey Bonding operation in 1890.

Great flavor with a smooth finish

Complex flavor- super smooth!
 
Scott
Scott,
Strong apricot flavor I wasn’t expecting. It’s a different Irish whiskey—in a good way.
 
Steven
Steven,
This has hints of fruits and nuts with a lingering smooth chocolate finish. It’s good, but I wouldn’t spend this much on it. I’d be more willing to pay ~$40 or so for this, definitely not $80. You’d be better off going for redbreast, teeling single grain, or an aged tullamore dew for less money and get a better tasting Irish whiskey.

Very smooth and good. Light but with good flavor.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, balanced, Blended Irish Single Malt Whiskey that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & complex life leads to a delicate death of medium length with hints of hazelnut spread, apricot yogurt, mince pie filling & pecan pie.
 
Travis
Travis,
Overall enjoyed the tasting experience. Initially hit with the grapefruit and marmalade and finishes oily and waxy with a slight zest. Would recommend for an Irish whiskey.
 
Brian

Steven
Steven,
Burned when drunk straight. Little ice and all the flavors came out and was very smooth
 
Robert
Robert,
This whiskey went down kicking and screaming. It did not want me to drink it and it had no quit. It burned with the initial taste, it burned throughout, it burned on the way down, & it burned long after. No way to get any flavors when it’s nothing but fire. It did not like me nor I it. I found no redeeming qualities.
 
Chris
Chris,
Even better than batch one. This second version of the Gael is even better than the first with more age comes a more robust flavor profile.
