Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

22. Jun 2018
Many malt drinkers tend to overlook grain whiskies, although they can offer a nice variation in smell and taste. Kilbeggan 8-year-old is column-distilled from corn and matured in ex-bourbon casks, giving it a sweet, biscuity and slightly dusty nose. Vanilla, coconut cream and hints of lavender stick out in particular. The palate evolves sugary, aromatic and a little spirity with notes of walnuts, breakfast cereals and citrus fruits. A touch of wood spice accompanies the short finish. This is not an Irish whiskey to wax poetic about, but I have certainly tried worse.

This 8 year old Irish Single Grain Whiskey is made exclusively from corn.

Lemon sponge, honeyed cereal, vanilla and a little caramel. Toasted oak, banana and tropical fruit. Fairly light, but full of flavour - very nice indeed

Sweet, smooth vanilla before spicy oak comes in. Touches of menthol and coconut ice

Long with maple and pecan, milk chocolate and a hint of salinity
