Irish Whiskey - Blended

Kilbeggan 15 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Proof (if it were needed) that Cooley is a serious player.

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

Kilbeggan Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Light but firm and satisfying. A welcome newcomer for everyday drinking.

Kilbeggan Finest
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 An attractive sipper, but only in decent mouthfuls. A good session whiskey...if one is allowed to say that in these moderate times.

Locke's Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Very appetising.

Michael Collins Blend
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 Visually, a very attractive whisky – rich amber and gloriously viscous. If my suspicions are correct, an earlier expression of this whisky reminded me of a Peshwari Nan. Must be shared and discussed...

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

Midleton Very Rare
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 In general, Midleton is a bit too elegant for me, but this is a lovely vintage. The Yquem of whiskies?

Midleton Very Rare 2014
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
7 All oak and no trousers!

Millars Special Reserve
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Perfectly pleasant but very light in flavours.

Murphy's Blended Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
6 Pleasant but a little one-dimensional.

Paddy Old Irish Whiskey
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
6 A classic Irish, though less full in flavour than Jameson.

Redbreast 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
9 Delicious, soothing, contemplative. A great whiskey. Makes me want to get on a plane to Dublin immediately.

St. Patrick's Irish Whiskey Oak Aged
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 40.00%
7 A pleasant blend, although I would have liked to have seen some malt character on the palate.

The Irishman 70 Superior
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 A promising nose, but doesn't deliver on the palate.

The Quiet Man “An Fear Ciuin” Traditional Irish Whiskey
Blended - Northern Ireland - 40.00%
8 A delightful blend. The grain feels like it has some age and makes up for the lessened malt character on the palate.

The Whisky Exchange Old Midleton 1967, 35 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 41.10%
8 Post prandial. After the aloo.

Tullamore D.E.W. Celebratory Phoenix Single Batch
Blended - Republic of Ireland - 55.00%
8 What is this? An Irish pot still whiskey aged in French oak. Either way, it's gorgeous!

Tullamore Dew
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
6 This metallic edge suggests the use of young grain that hasn't matured out fully.

Tullamore Dew 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Flirtatious, but not a lot to say for itself.

Tullamore Dew 12 Years Old
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 This is a super little whiskey; a premium Jameson clone. And a good one too.

Tullamore Dew 12 Years Old Special Reserve
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 Sophisticated and seductive, but I always find it a little lacking in substance.

Tullamore Dew Black 43
Blended - Ireland - 43.00%

Tullamore Dew Heritage
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
7 Deserves points for daring to be so sweet.

Tullamore Dew Heritage
Blended - Ireland - 40.00%
8 A very decent and reserved blend that is simply overshadowed and outclassed by the 12 Years Old.
