Whisky reviews for Kilbeggan Black

4 users have left 4 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 77.67 points.

  1. Archer scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    It doesn't challenge, it doesn't hurt, but overall it remains rather pale. The peated malt content could have been higher - and the home-grown Kilbeggan, the Rye and the Single Pot Still, with their 43%, show that only 3 percentage points more can make a difference.

      Very mild with fruity hints and notes that let the grain portion shimmer through. But not in such a way that it seems overwhelming, but rather well balanced. Woodier than the Kilbeggan standard, which is probably due to the peated malt. But really only lightly peated, you could overlook it if you didn't know.

      Also as mild on the palate as you would expect at 40%. Drought spreads quickly, and here the peated malt is more noticeable. Vanilla, honey, dry coniferous forest floor. Some toffee and caramel, roasted coffee beans, milk chocolate. A little pepper.

      Despite the peat, he's gone quickly. There is still a bit of woody dryness and spiciness, remnants of the vanilla, honey, and chocolate.

  5. aw-home scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    I can't see the alleged peat smoke or even maritime notes.
    For me it's a sweet and fruity Irish blend.
    Very good price / performance ratio
