New kid on the block. A lot of action, little talk.

As you might have guessed, the Quiet Man is a new actor on the international Whiskey stage. The Whiskey is a product of a partnership between the St. Louis based Luxco Company and Niche Drinks in Derry, Northern Ireland. This is the first Irish Whiskey bottled in Derry in well over a 100 years. They’re getting their spirit elsewhere for now, but a new distillery is in the works as well. That’s great news for them and for Irish Whiskey in general, which is running low on supply as it is.

The Quiet Man brand was born when Ciaran Mulgrew, the founder of Niche Drinks, decided to create a Whiskey to honour his father. The latter was a Belfast bartender for 50 years and was, like any good bartender, true to the code and told no tales – he was indeed The Quiet Man or as they say in Ireland, “An Fear Ciuin.” Their handcrafted Whiskey is distilled in traditional Irish Whiskey pot stills, matured in oak barrels and recasked in first-fill bourbon casks. The fact that finishing takes place in barrels that previously held only Bourbon, gives this dram a bit of a special twist and originality.

Their flagship is currently the Quiet Man 8 YO, single malt bottled at 40% ABV and aged for 8 years. Although we’re dealing with a relatively young dram (and a young brand!), we can safely vouch it can spar with the big boys when it comes to flavor and complexity, while retaining that classic smooth finish synonymous with Irish Whiskey. If you’re looking for a gateway into the world of Irish Whiskey, this is a good place to start. If you know your way around them already, you’ve got a new friend on the other side of the bar. The Quiet Man.

Don
Don,
I liked the drink but not as much as I had thought I would. I had read so much about the Quiet Man but it did not live up to all the "write-ups" that I had read prior to the purchase. I may purchase it again, but then again, I may try something else before I purchase this again.

James,
Ironic this would show up on Flaviar. I happened to be sitting in a Pub in Derry 2 weeks ago, I saw the bottle on the shelf and inquired. Bartender told me it was a new, Local to Derry, distillery. Well sign me up!! Pour me a double and do not let the American accent fool you, water please, no ice. It was very smooth and very enjoyable. I had been drinking Powers and Bushmills the entire week I was there, except when I found Quiet Man. I set out to buy a bottle in Dublin at an off license before flying out, they did not have any. I was delighted to find it here upon my return home. So how was it? Well, maybe it was the setting I was in, I thought it was on level with Powers John Lane Reserve, not quite as smooth as a Bushmills 11+ y/o but a good sipping Whiskey nonetheless. Just ordered 2 bottles, one a gift for a good friend.

A splash of water made all the difference! I am adding this ot my favorites list!
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I enjoyed this whiskey. Even bough it as a gift for my father. Little burn, and the initial taste is mild, but builds on you.
 
Bill
Bill,
I'm a big fan of Irish whiskeys, but this one just didn't do it for me at all. I actually poured out the rest of the glass after 2 or 3 sips. It had a "greasy" finish to it, and frankly, I thought that the flavor profile was unimpressive.
 
John
John,
Brighter than the flavor profile would suggest - but a great Irish Whiskey.
 
Will
Will,
Smooth as silk, low burn, nice whiskey.
