Insider knowledge: The Wild Geese Rare whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from Ireland. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be The Wild Geese Rare whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
The nose is full and smooth. Plenty of cereal sweetness and barley with oaken dryness and a little zest. The palate is quite full and smooth with oaken cereal notes and citrus zest. The finish is of medium-length with a little oaked heat.
The Rare Irish is only one of four in this range made by Cooley's for Avalon; the brand owner. Award winning, the Limited Edition was awarded 93/100 by Jim Murray in his 2009 whisky bible, who describes it as "a limited edition of unlimited beauty". Unfortunately, neither the Single Malt nor the limited Edition appear to be available on this site. Pity.

I'm a big fan of Irish whiskey at the moment, but upon buying this product and its malt version at an airport. Found both the quality of the whiskey and packaging poor. I couldn't get the stopper out, the label was wonky and the whiskey was poor considering its price range. Pity indeed.
