The heart and soul of The Quiet Man line is a brilliant foundation of Irish Single Malt with a lovely chocolate profile.

As a boy, Ciaran Mulgrew would sometimes go to work with his dad at the local pub where he was a barman. As he tells it, while tending bar he would hear stories told by patrons. But he kept those stories quiet as a confessional. He was the Quiet Man. Ciaran has since spent his career in the drinks business and named his Irish Whiskey after his father in this way. The Quiet Man Whiskies are made by his Niche Drinks company which is a subsidiary of Luxco, which as of 2021 is owned by MGP. But Niche Drinks is left alone in Ireland to keep on doing exactly what they have been doing from the start — making great Irish Whiskies and Cream Liqueurs.

There is, of course, a wide range of Irish Whiskies produced by The Quiet Man. But the heart and soul of them all is their core twelve year-old Irish Single malt. The Quiet Man 12 Year Old is 100% Irish Single Malt triple-distilled and aged for a dozen years in ex-Bourbon casks. They bottle this simple gem at a spot-on perfect 46% ABV without any unnecessary funny-business. It’s a Whiskey that looks you straight in the eye with pride.

"An Fear Ciuin" is the way to say "The Quiet Man" in both Scots and Irish Gaelic.

Appearance / Color
Pale Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
When we first cracked open the bottle, we could swear that we smelled brownies fresh from the oven. In the glass we found notes of Cognac and warm butter and sweet cocoa.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile retains its soft, dark chocolate note but now there is the tingle of orange zest, some vanilla, and a crack of spice on the tongue.

Finish
The finish is medium-length and warming with sweetness and wood.

Irish Whiskey became the most renowned Whiskey and most popular Spirit in the 19th century after the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.
The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. The reason for shamrock’s fame is Saint Patrick.
Whiskey producers lose on average about 2% of their stock a year to angels' share. For Jameson, the biggest one of the Irish Whiskey brands, it means 29 thousand bottles going into the air (literally) every day!
There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first Spirits ever made.
Poteen is a Whiskey made from potatoes, or in other words: it's Irish Vodka.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
