Love it!! Quietman is my every day sipping whiskey. Very smooth. Not harsh or too sweet. My son got it for me last year for Father's Day and have been drinking it ever since. I even keep a bottle in my desk at the office!!
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.
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.
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.
