    Please note that this is NOT a 30-year-old Kilbeggan distilled in 1968, but a Cooley blend bottled in 1998 to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of a company called Multiprints Ltd based in Swords, Ireland (not sure if mentioning a 30-year-old anniversary of a company on a whisky label is misleading). Remember that the original Kilbeggan closed its doors already in the 1950s and the brand was subsequently used by Cooley in the 1990s. Cooley just started distilling in 1987, so the whiskey should be around 10 years old at the latest.
    • Nose
      Start with quite a lot of cereal and maltiness. Followed by fruity hints of conference pears, peel zest, and melon. Juniper berries and sultanas as well. Sandalwood. Later on, some notes of furniture polish mixed with menthol.
    • Taste
      Now more on nuttiness; walnuts, toasted chestnuts, and pecan pie. Candied apples and a touch of caramel. Plenty of honey and custard. After a while gingerbread, hints of toffee, and butterscotch.
    • Finish
      Medium long with cinnamon and a little ginger. Not very complex, but okay for a blend of this age.
