Blended Irish Whiskey - 2013
San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Insider knowledge: Kilbeggan whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from Ireland. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Kilbeggan whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
The nose is smooth and gentle with nut oils, hazelnut and barley, cereal sweetness and a little peat. The palate is of good body with honeyed sweetness and malt. The finish is short with oaked dryness.
I only drink Irish whiskey. That being said there is not much of a selection here in Portland. This might be the worst Irish whiskey I have ever tried. Leaves you with a bit of a hang over if not careful, which is unlike most Irish whiskey.I like Powers, Michael Collins, Jameson, but my favorite is Tyrconnell.

Tried a bottle bought at a duty-free shop. For the price, it is a good bargain: smooth just like traditional Irish, notes of sugar, grapes and nuts with a little pepper/spice. Would not mind buying this again.

A good all rounder especially when my local liquor store sells it for $16.99.
