Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Kurt,
Great bottle. Very smooth. Sweet but not one note. Nice complexity. I'd put this in the home bar any day.

Kristy,
Very good Irish whisky. Taken straight is good, a dash of water is even better. Ice is a bit too much, dilutes the flavor.
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Eric,
Smooth with great flavor all the way through the finish. Best Irish Whiskey I've had. I look forward to trying the 14, 16, and 21 years from Knappogue as well.

i like the distinct fruity flavor that lingers.

Decently smooth, but nothing special to jump off the shelf for.
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
William,
Somewhat bolder than most Irish whiskeys I’ve had - seems weightier, more complex.
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Teri,
Not my favorite. The finish is nice. But it had a medicine-like taste. Prefer a sweeter, fuller flavor
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Christopher,
Great flavor and smoothness from the first sip. Mellow with a wonderful whiskey finish on the upper pallet.

Knappogue Castle 16 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish
Francis,
My go-to Irish whiskey. Vanilla, citrus, and chocolate undertones. Smooth, not sharp or harsh. Great smooth finish.

John,
Nice, easy-sipping Irish Whiskey.
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Jeffrey,
Smooth, easy to drink. If you like fruity flavors it’s great. Those fruit favors are a bit overwhelming at times, but it doesn’t make it suck. This feels like a whiskey you’d keep around for people who don’t like whiskey.

Good flavor. Strong Taste.

Philip,
Slightly let down by this spirit. I really enjoy the Irish single malts, but this one lacked a lot of the flavors and characteristics that I’ve come to expect when drinking neat. Water opened it up, but not enough for my personal palette. Still an ok drink

Richelle,
Complex but can definitely pick out all of the flavors!

The flavor spiral here is spot-on. Biscuits, honey, and dried fruits with warm and lingering finish. Outstanding!

Jennifer,
My first Flaviar purchase, and a good one to start with. Smooth, easy to drink, a good nightcap.
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Lisa,
I am traditionally a neat whisky drinker. It is a rare thing for me to add water/ice to my stash. I had read that a splash of water can make this whisky too fruity and sweet. However, I find that breaking my habit of "neatness" is the best thing I can do for Knappague Castle. It truly opens this dram up and brings out a world of flavor. A splash mellows the heat, which can be a bit overbearing at first since the heat seems to be the first flavor I pick up in the spiral. I get more of a flower-fruit flavor with a touch of water. A really good bottle. I give it a 7. Would certainly buy another in the future.

Jamison,
Its a solid whiskey, I would classify it as a beginners entry to whiskey. Thinner than I would prefer, smooth with a little harshness on the follow through.
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Grigorii,
Not bad, but worser than expected; it resembles Bushmills and Glenmorangie; it's too honey and sweet for me; but maybe for someone it worth of buying

Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Anthony,
Slightly on the peaty side for my taste, harsh on the first sip but smooths out with a nice finish
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Scott,
One of, if the best Whiskey I’ve ever tasted. Only reason I’m not giving it 10, is I’ve not had enough m, plus no one’s perfect.
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Marsala Cask
Robert,
A very nice Irish with a nice finish. Just for comparison, Redbreast is a favorite of mine. If you like it, you'll like this.

Sweet honey on the nose. I also got a little bit of cherry and vanilla. Soft feel. Heavy apricot notes on the palate

Huge fan, very smooth and light. Sweet honey, vanilla, and apple notes present. Better neat, than with water. I'm new to Irish whiskeys but this is has me excited to try the other styles by this distillery.

This Whiskey is a wonderful value. I rate it as good as some whiskeys costing 50% more.

Very smooth. Excellent taste. Just a bit of a bite, but not unpleasant. My first Irish whiskey. Definitely want to try more.
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old
Bill,
A wonderfully smooth simple whiskey that delights your tastes. One drop of water releases the flavors. Tried straight then with one drop of water to release the hidden flavors.

I had two bottles of this when I visited Ireland about 12 years ago. It was so good I brought one home!

Excellent mix of oak and fruit. I really enjoyed the 12 year and look forward to trying some of the older bottles. This is my go-to Irish whiskey. Great value for the price
Knappogue Castle 12 Year Old Marsala Cask
Gary,
I'd never had a Marsala cask finished whisk(e)y before, and this was clearly Marsala finished. A bit too heavy handed on the finish for my taste - although not offputting.
