Irish whiskey, touring the Hebrides and an American whiskey supplement on Kentucky Bourbon



Magilligan 1991 Limited Edition, Sherry Wood Finish
Single Malt - Ireland - 46.00%
7 Finishing Cooley's peated malt in a sherry wood for a year works a lot better than I imagined, and makes me wonder what an unpeated malt would taste like after a year in Jerez.

Magilligan 1991 Sherry Wood Finish
Single Malt - Ireland - 46.00%
7 I liked the lively 8 Years Old version. Would I be tempted away by something smoother, more mature? I would think about it...maybe.

Magilligan 8 Years Old, Irish Peated Malt
Single Malt - Ireland - 43.00%
7 A lovely, clean, malty, easily drinkable, whisky. The label promises peat, but that is hard to find.

Magilligan Pure Pot Still
Single Malt - Ireland - 43.00%
7 Although it says 'pure pot still' on the label, this is a single malt, there's no unmalted barley here. At 5 or so years old this malt is still a bit green.
