  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    one of the few whiskey that I have no words for. You can drink it well and there is nothing wrong with it, but frankly it is relatively meaningless. At least for me, who doesn't have the deepest insight into the world of Irish whiskey.
    • Nose
      sweet, spicy, cereals, minimal glue notes, all in all simple but fine.
    • Taste
      at first sweet, then becoming somewhat bitter, the grain notes remain.
    • Finish
      slightly tart, quite short ... a hint of fruit at the end.

    A pretty cool sock, this Kilbeggan SPS, like the whole distillery. Closed for a long time, only the name remained under which Cooley products were marketed.
    The distillery was started up again in 2010 without any big marketing noise, without Tam-Tam - and since then they have been burning happily in Kilbeggan and are now bringing a PLC without age to the market, as if it were yesterday that the last single Pot Still was drawn into the bottle in Kilbeggan.

    Last year there was already the Kilbeggan Small Batch Rye, a disguised PLC, which was only called "Rye" because it was no longer allowed to operate under the PLC with 30% Rye in the mash bill. It is said to be an old recipe, SPS, as was more often made in Ireland in the past.
    The Kilbeggan Single Pot Still now comes with a 2.5% oat content in the mash bill and can therefore also be called "Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey".
    • Nose
      85 85
      Creamy (on the nose? Yes, somehow it makes this impression), soft and spicy at the same time, a light hint of citrus juice. Initially not very differentiated, over time pot still spices separate from the crowd. Together with the lemon and the newly added oranges, this results in a very tasty nose that you could not expect in a single pot still at 43% and under 10 years of age. And now: appearance of the Jaffa biscuits!
    • Taste
      85 85
      Full, creamy, spicy and dry onset. Grain notes covered in a cloud of nutmeg, pepper, allspice, cinnamon and savory. Clearly pronounced pot still spices, no youthfulness whatsoever. Nougat, marzipan. Hazelnuts, almonds and honey. Orange peel. Sweet and spicy at the same time.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium-long and dry finish, in which the aromas from the palate persist for a long time. Nougat chocolate, almonds and spices predominate, the fruit notes weaken faster.

  8. Myke scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Less expected, but surprisingly positive in the nose and taste. If you are looking for a soft, gentle and creamy-oily summer whiskey, you will find it here.
    • Nose
      86 86
      fruity, especially towards orange, light sweetness, nougat, honey, a little vanilla, oak spice in the background, flowery and malty-tart notes over time.
      Something like a beautiful "setting sun" dram.
    • Taste
      86 86
      very soft, creamy-oily. Seasoning only reaches the tongue with time. Fruit back towards orange. Nougat / caramel. Hint of nuts towards the finish.
      Dangerously tasty.
    • Finish
      82 82
      becomes drier, short to medium-long persistent with spice, the fruits slowly begin to withdraw. Pleasant, not too dominant malt note appears again.
      A little more should have come here. But for the price you still get a lot for the nose and the taste.
