John
John,
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.
 
Robert
Robert,
Nice and smooth but with enough flavor to keep it interesting. Easy drinking, but not particularly remarkable for me.
 
Tracy
Tracy,
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.
 
VD
VD,
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.
 
Andrea
Andrea,
Nice nose, pleasant green apple taste, but ends bitter
 
Louise
Louise,
You can taste the almond—very light.
 
William
William,
Green Apple ALL DAY! creamy carmel, smoothness.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
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.
 
John
John,
No lamb spleen but kind of wishing we had. A very nice Irish whiskey, send more.
 
Chris
Chris,
Nice rounded mouthfeel, fruit hints on the front end, with some complexity, nutty flavors and then bread and sweet at the finish. very nice
 
Ron
Ron,
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.

Slightly Smokey, smooth.
 
Todd
Todd,
Aroma is cracker and fruit. On the palate is little spice, a lot of apricot and chocolate.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Not my favorite Irish whiskey. A bit spicy
 
Mathew
Mathew,
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.
 
Darin
Darin,
I thought this was a good solid Irish Whiskey
 
Michael
Michael,
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.
 
MICHAEL
MICHAEL,
Light, crisp, flavorful but not the warmth I prefer.
 
Trevor
Trevor,
Very good flavor. Sweet but not too sweet.
 
Craig
Craig,
Didn’t care for this. Alcohol was too overpowering. Glad this was a selection from a tasting box and not a 750 ml bottle.
 
Michael
Michael,
Really enjoy most of the JJ Corry selections that come out and this was no different
 
Laura
Laura,
Very dynamic, new flavors on each sip
 
Todd

This was the best of the tasters. Decent neat but the water really brought out the flavors. I would drink again.

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.

Seth
Seth,
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.

Delicious
 
Jordan
Jordan,
Smells fruity. Decent bread with apricot finish.
 
Will
Will,
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
Brian,
really enjoyed this as one of my tastings. will definitely purchase a bottle. very laid back comfort food type flavors in this one
 
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.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
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.
 
John
John,
It’s Has a rather laid back mild Flavor.
