For some whiskies, it can be hard to write down a lot of tasting notes because there simply is not much happening. Imagine the exact opposite of a peated Islay malt - that's Kilbeggan. Light, sweet and indistinctly floral, the aroma disintegrates into hints of cereals, vanilla and peach. Tasting thin, bland but less spirity than expected, there are notes of caramel candies, bitter honey and distant oak. There is no real finish, it just fades away. A harmless, mass-produced Irish blend which is light on every aspect, so do not feel guilty to put this into Irish coffee.
