Diageo redeems themselves with a real-deal Irish Whiskey … May the Dram Be With You.
 
A few years ago in 2015, somewhere in the corporate tower of Diageo — lords of international spirits some middle management minion came into the star chamber and told the emperor that he had been successful in selling Bushmills Irish Whiskey. To which the dark lord exclaimed … “You did WHAT?!”
 
OK … we’re only speculating a bit. But with the exploding popularity of Irish Whiskey these days, it’s obvious that Diageo regretted the sale. Roe & Co. Irish Whiskey was released for the first time in March of 2017 to bring a premium Irish Whiskey back into the Diageo portfolio. It’s named after the George Roe & Co that once owned the Thomas Street Distillery in Dublin — the largest in the world at the time. Diageo is planning on building a new Roe & Co. Distillery to support the line, so we believe that a Single Malt is coming as a sequel. 
 
First, let’s just say it out loud … Diageo knows the spirits business as well as anyone, and this is a solid initial offering right out of the gate. It’s a blend in all the right ways. Diageo put one of their best people on it — master blender Jedi-Knight of Whiskey, Caroline Martin. And it’s aged exclusively in ex-Bourbon casks — most first-fill — and bottled at an almost perfect 45% ABV. Spot on flavor and texture. We think that this Irish Whiskey is a bargain and that it will likely sell for more in coming years as the public awakens to the new brand.

The Harp is the official emblem of Ireland, not the shamrock. It was St.Patrick who made the shamrock so popular.

Barely any flavor going on here. There's a slight creaminess to it but that's about it. No fruit or honey, no woods, not much, but a shitty alcohol taste. At first taste there's the cream, that quickly fades to nothing, but a flavorless burn. Beautiful looking bottle though, good to just throw up on the bar for decor, maybe good in mixed drinks, but I'd never know. Cheapish end of the spectrum- I'm surprised about all the good reviews... maybe I got a bad batch- tasted and smelled like straight medical antiseptic, aged for approximately twenty minutes... don't let the bottle & price seduce you, better off with just about any other Irish.

Solid 7-8. Aroma is deceptive, almost a turpentine smell, but the flavor is excellent. Vanilla, smooth, easy on the palate.

Lennart,
Sweet Dreams! Really enjoyed this one.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Damn good. Tasted it out of the 'blended not stirred' sample pack. I would describe it as more of a golden appearance than amber. Subtle smell. The flavor was smooth vanilla with the right amount of spice. Great finish with a solid warmth.

Bond’s taste is as fine as his looks. This box is full of flavors that lure you closer. There’s a journey from the way the Roe & Co Irish Whiskey hugged your tongue to the sweet softness of the Hedonism Scotch.

Tasted too much like maples syrup
 
James
James,
First smells of vanilla, cinnamon & lavender. Mild fruity but spicy aftertaste. Decent but won’t be adding a full bottle to my collection
 
Amanda
Amanda,
Decent blended whiskey. Not as many layers as I wouldve thought; very prominent in vanilla and spice, I can't pick up much else. nice finish, although more like a very hot finish. It's nice, but I don't think I would buy again .

Martin,
Soft and creamy on the nose. A sweet spice opening with with subtle hits of fruit in the background. A short ending. A reminder of Christmastime. A nice whiskey to have on hand for an evening sipping or to share with friends. Great for new drinkers and easy on the wallet.

Stronger spicy flavor than I expected. Not bad, not special by comparison.

Antti,
It is an outstanding, creamy, Irish whiskey with a strong birth, while a spicy life leads to a delicate death.

I lean towards scotch but this Irish whiskey was quite nice. On the sweet side but had more kick/character than Jameson
 
Scott
Scott,
Not quite as smooth as a premium scotch but plenty smooth for me. Definitely taste the vanilla. I wish the nose was a bit more pleasant & had a softer finish.

Light and slightly sweet, hints of apple and pear. Big spicy finish.
 
Michael
Michael,
A fine whiskey indeed - the caramel and the syrup make it smooth and sweet while it still maintains a spicy character of whiskey. Worth a bottle for sure.
