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.

There's a lot of sweetness and fruit on the nose with pears, apples, pineapples, a touch of citrus, honey, and vanilla.

Nice 12 year

I can definitely taste the Oak and some sweet notes. Very light with just a little bit of bite to it. I would add this to my collection.

Apple-y in the nose. Some vanilla and oak in the mouth, but pretty light flavors for a 12 yo. Lots of wood in the finish; not as smooth as other Irish I've tried.

A Good Whiskey with Some Considerations

Jack Ryan Beggar Bush is a treat to be sure. The nose is fresh and clean with notes of fruits, citrus and grass. The taste is well-balanced, with sugary oak, marzipan and marshmellow. It is a good solid whiskey, but for its price, I'd probably forgoe this single malt and roll with a Pot Still such as Redbreast 12, Green Spot, or Powers John Lane. Regardless, you won't be disappointed with this one - a fine whiskey to be sure.

Best of "The Irishmen" taster set. Love the nose - very sweet, like fruit punch or overripe apples. The taste/finish is ok but not a lot of character.
