Member Reviews and Ratings of J.J. Corry 'The Gael' Batch No. 2 Irish Whiskey
I ordered this with very high hopes after a tasting. I received the wrong bottle from the vendor and, unfortunately, was never able to get the problem corrected in spite of Flaviar's efforts. The Batch 3 bottle I did receive is good, but not as good as the Batch 2 we ordered.
Nice and smooth but with enough flavor to keep it interesting. Easy drinking, but not particularly remarkable for me.
Pretty darn good and I appreciate the blend of well aged whiskeys. I think this gives Glenfarclas 25 a run for the money. The flavor profiles listed are pretty true.
you can do WAY WAY better for nearly 80 fckin bucks. Powers John's Lane is cheaper and infinitely better. Price to taste ratio is hogsheet. I'd pay $35 for this.
Nice nose, pleasant green apple taste, but ends bitter
You can taste the almond—very light.
Green Apple ALL DAY! creamy carmel, smoothness.
Decent. Somewhat unremarkable. I had heard good things about Batch No 1 and wonder how different this was to that. Received as part of the Irish tasting series. I love Irish, but would not go out of my way to look for this and wouldn’t pay anything near $100 for it. I don’t usually drink blends but was interested because of the 60% malt v. 40% grain ratio. I wanted to love this one. It didn’t impress, Im afraid. At this price I would pick up Hibiki Harmony blended Japanese whiskey... if I can find it.
No lamb spleen but kind of wishing we had. A very nice Irish whiskey, send more.
Nice rounded mouthfeel, fruit hints on the front end, with some complexity, nutty flavors and then bread and sweet at the finish. very nice
It started harsh and the finish was bitter and sharp
Full aroma! Up there as one of the best tasting whiskeys with a punch for under $100
Pretty solid. Certainly fruit on the nose and sweet on the back of it.
Sweet, fruity, rounded notes.
Solid. Great flavor. Not overpowering but tasty
Smooth, very filtered. My ch better than the flavor wheel implies. Very drinkable.
Slightly Smokey, smooth.
Aroma is cracker and fruit. On the palate is little spice, a lot of apricot and chocolate.
Not my favorite Irish whiskey. A bit spicy
This one smells like pears to me with maybe a little vanilla. It’s very buttery all the way through with the slightest hints of chocolate. It goes to a nutty roasted finish that fades to a bit of fruit. It’s not bad. I wouldn’t turn it down if it was offered to me.
I thought this was a good solid Irish Whiskey
Very medicinal neat. Finished it mixed as an Irish Mule and still wasn't impressed. At the price for a full bottle of this I'll stick to Tullamore.
Light, crisp, flavorful but not the warmth I prefer.
Very good flavor. Sweet but not too sweet.
Didn’t care for this. Alcohol was too overpowering. Glad this was a selection from a tasting box and not a 750 ml bottle.
Really enjoy most of the JJ Corry selections that come out and this was no different
Very dynamic, new flavors on each sip
This was the best of the tasters. Decent neat but the water really brought out the flavors. I would drink again.
Smooth and delicious
Smooth, good complex flavor, nice long finish.
Great flavor with a smooth finish
Complex flavor- super smooth!
Strong apricot flavor I wasn’t expecting. It’s a different Irish whiskey—in a good way.
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.
A mellow and welcoming smell with a hint of fruit, tart fruit. Has a smooth and flavorful taste. Nothing extraordinary, just a good tasting, smooth Irish whiskey.
Smells fruity. Decent bread with apricot finish.
Very smooth and good. Light but with good flavor.
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.
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.
really enjoyed this as one of my tastings. will definitely purchase a bottle. very laid back comfort food type flavors in this one
Burned when drunk straight. Little ice and all the flavors came out and was very smooth
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.
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.
