Greenore 8 Year Old
Also from Cooley Whiskey Distillery
Whiskey or Whisky
Interesting fact… Greenore 8 Year Old whiskey spells its name whiskey as it originates in Ireland. Had it been produced in Scotland its name would be Greenore 8 Year Old whisky, instead of whiskey.

Mr a Cash
I am not a whiskey drinker(gin brandy wine beer) I saw the bottle in my local The Lord John Russell I liked the look of the bottle and tried one or two glasses and must say I enjoyed them very much and no doubt will enjoy the others that I will have in the future.
Clean, crisp, oodles of pure honey and earthy spices on the nose. Gorgeous sweetness along with honeyed cereal. Dry, soft and full flavoured with soft, pure honey, a touch of toffee and earthy spices. Lovely depth and spiciness. Very soft and rounded for a grain. Long finish with hints of vanilla oak.
Although I am Irish by birth I have favoured Scotch for the past 30 years - no longer! Greenore Single Grain changed my outlook after a couple of glasses. It is absolutely amazing - an Irish whiskey of unparalled smoothness and flavour - thank you John Teeling! BRAVO!!!!
This is my new favourite. At 16 euro a bottle in duty free in Dublin Airport I'm getting through a lot of it.
... wasn't overly impressed. Given it's mostly maize, I figured it would taste like a bourbon (which I don't care for), but my sample tastes more like a single malt, albeit with more burn. While I wouldn't characterize it as smooth, it's okay stuff. I see no need to buy another drink of it.
Award information is false
Sorry to nit pick but it didn't win a gold at the IWSC it won a Silver Outstanding, also if a bottling has won you should add the year, transparency and accuracy is important when selling whisky.
@ Award information is false
Worth a dram or two
Whilst Greenore 8 Year Old did indeed win a Silver Outstanding in 2012 and Silver (Best in Class) in 2011 it also won Gold (Best In Class) in 2010, 2009 and 2008 as well as double Gold at the Great Taste Awards in 2009. A multi-award winning grain whiskey! – The Chaps at Master of Malt
Greenore is an all-round whiskey. The bouquet contains sweet corn, banana, vanilla, and maple syrup. The palette, though less flavoursome than the bouquet, contains strong hints of cereal, baked apple, and vanilla (note: there is nothing overwhelming here). The finish is smooth, sprightly, and engaging, with little to no burn. In sum: this is an entry-level, relatively humble, and yet deliciously flavoured whiskey that is deserving of attention.
