Whisky Magazine - Editors Choice - Winner

World Whiskies Awards 2012 - World's Best Grain Whisky - Winner Whisky Magazine - Best Buy - Winner

Greenore 18 Years Old
Single Grain - Republic of Ireland - 46.00%
8 A very stylish grain which is showing grip and character rather than just getting sweeter and flabbier with age.

Connemara 1992
- Republic of Ireland - 50.50%
7 Robust and strong-willed. Worth a look.

Cooley 1992
- Republic of Ireland - 56.40%
7 A lovely summery afternoon dram.

Danny Boy 15 Years Old
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
7 An enjoyable dram. Well balanced with a good structure and a straightforward malty profile. Far better when neat. Water makes it soft and heavier.

Kilbeggan 18 Years Old
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
7 18 years already? Cooley continues to show its quality.

Jameson Select Reserve Small Batch
Blended - - 43.00%
7 Well put together.

Cask Collection Cooley 1992 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 58.90%
7 A rich nose and a somewhat restrained palate with an assertive oak print,which the high strength amplifies. But an elegant dryness.

Knappogue Castle Twin Wood 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
7 Nose and palate are completely different. The second saving the first. The palate shows a beautiful Irish character whereas the nose is bland. So drink it without nosing it.

Michael Collins Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
7 A refreshing blend that can be enjoyed slightly chilled.

Two Gingers 4 Years Old
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
7 The feel is good but it needs time to develop all the flavours. Four years old is just too early.

Greenore 8 Years Old
Single Grain - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
6 Young and juicy.

Michael Collins 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
7 Should we try pairing that whisky with cheese? I am not convinced...
