This Irish 12YO proves that beggars can be choosers.

The Ryan family has been in the Whiskey business for 6 generations — from owning public houses to farming the barley and distilling the Spirits. Eunan Ryan started working in the family pubs at the age of thirteen — obviously, this was before the advent of pesky child labor laws. But today he runs the family Whiskey businesses, along with his Jack Ryan Whiskey Company in Dublin. They've already struck gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and considering the tough competition they were up against, that's a mighty-fine accomplishment indeed!

This 12-year-old bottle we have here is a Beggar's Bush Cask Strength Single Malt. It's a limited edition 92-proof Irish Whiskey beauty that has spent the entirety of its dozen years in ex-bourbon casks. Beggars Bush is the still-operational family-run pub that Eunan's grandfather used to run during the time when Irish Whiskey was in decline and you can see both the establishment and the man himself on the label. It's fruity, sweet, spicy, and oh-so-easily imbibed.

Terrance
Terrance,
Nice fruity nose, easy to drink and nice finish.
 
Mark
Mark,
Fruity initial taste, buttery finish. Decent. Not my favorite.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
I enjoy the fruit notes of this Irish Whiskey, starting with the nose and into the taste. The finish is medium and coats the palate nicely. Very light feel from start to finish. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
 
Johannes
Johannes,
I love the fruitynes on the palate. First comes a nice sweet fruity wave, then the second wave with a punch of white buttery vanilla cookies. They both lasts all the way in the end of after taste. Very easy, nice way light and tastefull, sweet and fruity whiskey.
 
Michael
Michael,
Medicine smell and medicine taste...Only good thing I have to say is it was smooth
 
Darin
Darin,
Does start smooth and has a fruit flavor. It has a strong alcohol finish, but enjoyable
 
Thomas
Thomas,
A nose that makes you want to sit back in a leather chair and sip... very enjoyable.
 
Mathew
Mathew,
Not bad I get tropical fruit on the nose and then mixed fruit up front. Then alcohol burn and an instant deep malty biscuit finish that quickly tapers to a lingering sweetness. Not super complex but very drinkable.
 
MICHAEL
MICHAEL,
Wide range of flavors, all very good. Nice aroma and just felt nice on my palate.
 
Craig
Craig,
Starts out smooth. Most notably fruity and vanilla. Nice flavors until the finish: alcohol burn and alcohol aftertaste. I really want to like this. Just wish it finished better.
 
Ric
Ric,
The orange and vanilla and honey notes were very obvious even for this novice
 
Terry
Terry,
Sweet and delectable, like drinking a marshmallow.
 
Jordan
Jordan,
Hint of smoke/oak, and malty
 
Edward
Edward,
Has a nice burn to it, and I could detect many of the flavors in the spiral. I liked that the flavor was still in your mouth a bit after having a sip, and I found some of the flavors more detectable after the sip than during. A good sipping whiskey and would work as a mixer. Definitely not a “shooting” whiskey.
 
Laura
Laura,
Very fruity, almost floral
 
Brad
Brad,
Maybe your thing but just not mine.
 
Todd
Todd,
Decent. 2nd place in the tasting kit. A little better with a drop or two of water.
 
Brent
Brent,
Great flavor smooth and easy to sip for the long haul.
 
Steven
Steven,
Light and easy to drink. I love the oaky undertones
 
Matt
Matt,
Clean, light odor with light vanilla notes. Unpleasant, herbal aftertaste that lingers far too long.
 
Richard
Richard,
My experience with Irish Whiskey is admittedly limited, but I found this a bit too harsh for my unseasoned palate. Even with a little ice, I couldn't appreciate the flavor.
 
Luis
Luis,
Not my cup of whiskey.
 
Mitchell
Mitchell,
Orange, light smoke and honey.
 
Steven
Steven,
I can taste the malty, biscuit notes while drinking this, but I get an odd metallic aftertaste. I would not recommend purchasing this as a full bottle.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Great flavor, smooth, notes of orange
 
Scott
Scott,
Fruity taste comes through strong!
 
Steve
Steve,
Extremely harsh. Seems higher in alcohol than it is. Even with a few drops of water never really opened up or became complex. Would be okay as a mixer I guess.
 
Krista
Krista,
Smooth, tasty. Nice after kick.
 
Holly
Holly,
Kind of bland and burns. Needs to be mixed to be enjoyed.
 
Mackenzie
Mackenzie,
One of the best Irish whiskies I've tried. Woody/oaky, with malt and hints of fruitiness. Overall, really good. Would definitely buy again if it wasn't $70+.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Fruity and smooth. Not outstanding, but very good all the same
 
Will
Will,
It’s very good. Very bold heavy flavors and needs time. Like a big cigar. But for me, not my fav. Should be a 7 ranking for more for me as a reminder to not purchase this.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Pretty good but not my favorite.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, elegant, Limited Release Cask Strength Single Malt Irish Whiskey that has a fruity birth; while a tropical life leads to a balanced death with notes of malt & wood.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Nice subtlety as it’s been aged in a bourbon cask; I’m a fan of this one. And it has a kick that sneaks up on you. Nom nom 🤤
 
rigoberto
rigoberto,
Very balanced, good whiskey
 
Louis
Louis,
Great Irish but it’s no Bushmills.
 
Brian
Brian,
this one was a bit harsh for me in the tasting.... not a fan when it's got that harsh bite that takes away from its flavors
 
Palani
Palani,
For an Irish whiskey fanatic living in the tropics, this lemon, orange dark wood head and honey vanilla finish is everything and anything I could ever want sitting in the 100 Fahrenheit heat and 100% humidity. Warm, comforting, zingy in every way you love. A touch of ice water to open it up a little and you are sitting pretty.
 
Robert
Robert,
This was a solid whiskey with a definitive fruitiness. Slightly harsh on the way down, but overall I liked it & would recommend.
 
Luis
Luis,
Smooth and sweet without getting thick in the end.
 
Evan
Evan,
I actually liked this it went down smoothly and it was my favorite of the tasting box it came in
 
Doug
Doug,
Rich flavors on the front, harsh finish neat. A little ice / water brings the fruit out nicely.
 
Conor
Conor,
Fruity. Harsh finish
 
Kent
Kent,
Good taste. Nice warmth going down.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Very smooth. Get the fruity and honey aromas in the beginning. Then the light burn at the end
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Harsh mouth feel. Wood and orange come through. Bit of a bitter aftertaste
 
Jerry
Jerry,
Not a fan, didn’t care for the finish.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
A very nice sweet, fruity front end flavor with a woody finish. Certainly better than average, but their a definite burn at the end that loses it a few points in my book. Overall, very good.
