“The most popular Irish whiskey in the world is a mass-produced, cheap and undemanding spirit that can be used for mixing purposes or sipped neat. On the nose, Jameson is rather featureless and lacking substance with an occasional alcoholic…” Read more

“Irish whiskey and peat - do these two go together? Connemara's peatiness has its own style, which is distinctly different from Islay's peat bombs: it is more herbal, restrained and well-integrated. Light and floral on the nose, there is a mix…” Read more

“It is colored and filtered, it has only 40%, but the unique maturation in 3 barrels, great paired with the Brennereicharakter, make him the top whiskey for me” Read more

“Using a combination of malted and unmalted barley, Green Spot is a prime example of triple distilled, traditional Irish Pot Still whiskey. Sweet apple cake, freshly cut grass and cereals feature prominently on the nose, and there are hints…” Read more

“On the banks of the River Bush, there used to be a watermill, hence the name 'Bushmills'. Licensed in 1608, it's one of the oldest distilleries in the world. Light and engaging, the nose of this triple distilled Single Malt combines sour peach…” Read more

“Indulgent, opulent, silky and rich, this is teenaged Irish whiskey nearing perfection. In direct comparison to its younger sibling (Green Spot), the twelve-year-old expression has more wood influence, more spices, more "dark" aromatics, and…” Read more

Average price € 20.92

“Irish whiskey tends to be soft and 'green' in its style, and Tullamore Dew is no exception to this. Triple distillation has clearly diminished the roughness of the spirit, making it quite palatable. On the nose, there is not much happening…” Read more

“The first bottle of this I had back in '07, and I have to admit, not much has changed since. Still one of my all time favourites. I love the irish pot still style in general, it really appeals to me with a unique, undistinguishable and cryptic…” Read more

“I must say I was very skeptical about this whiskey, as it is now a "supermarket whiskey" for a reasonable price. But he really convinced me for the price. Nice soft and fruity and above all pleasant smoke. I honestly can not think of a single…” Read more
