Whisky Reviews for Kilbeggan 21-year-old

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.29 points

  1. boy_genius_ck scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    despite being aged in a plethora of casks, bourbon dominates, doesn’t feel like a 21 year old, good but too watered down, very easy drinking though
    • Nose
      rich honey, floral, light fruits, thick bourbon, fried coconut milk residue
    • Taste
      light, sweet, oily honey, tree sap, light fruits, toasted coconut cream, butter, bourbon
    • Finish
      short, sweet, thin, light fruits, coconut oil at the back followed by malty sugar and grain alcohol

  2. schengel10 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A mature, old and good Irish blend - but not cheap!
    • Nose
      fresh and fruity (berries, oranges);
    • Taste
      Gentle soft onset, sweet fruits (ripe pear, orange), malt, distinct "old" oak, very balanced and tasty;
    • Finish
      medium-length finish with oak spice, in the finish a bit bitter;

  5. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Soft, sweet and tasty as the 8YO, but also quite simple, not more complex or interesting, only softer, more balanced, more mature, a little more noble - nice thing, for the double price of the 8YO, but not for the quadruple.
    • Nose
      mild, sweet, banana, orange, applesauce, some roasted aromas and wood
    • Taste
      very soft, velvety, tasty, vanilla, hazelnut, some oak and licorice
    • Finish
      medium long, soft, some chocolate and milk coffee
