Greenore 8 YO Bottling Note

An 8 year old single grain whiskey from Ireland! This won Gold (Best in Class) three years running at the International Wine and Spirits Competition between 2008 and 2010. Greenore is distilled at the Cooley distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Lemon sponge, honeyed cereal, vanilla and a little caramel. Toasted oak, banana and tropical fruit. Fairly light, but full of flavour - very nice indeed!

Palate: Sweet, smooth vanilla before spicy oak comes in. Touches of menthol and coconut ice.

Finish: Long with maple and pecan, milk chocolate and a hint of salinity.

Overall: A sensational grain whiskey this, top stuff!

    the best whisky ever.

    18th March 2015

    If you prefer whiskey to scotch, you'll love this!

    I enjoy Tullamore Dew, Greenspot and the like. Greenore 8yr is a lovely addition to my assortment. There's a clear honey note both on the nose and that first sip. This is just an easy-going, delicious whiskey

    Dinner with friends

    Had friends over for dinner, one of whom is Irish. Pulled out a bottle of this and we were both in raptures. A wonderful find.

    Sweet but subtle

    I like malt scotch whisky but have a fondness for the Irish too. This really impressed me it's sweet with a slight greenapple freshness that avoids it being too heavy and honeyed, and it follows up with warmth and depth. I don't remember googling a whisky straight after tasting before. Cooley's have a winner I think.

    My favorite

    First tasted in Killarney ... I am an Irish whisky lover ... enjoy Middleton, Red Breast and The Irishman ... but Greenore seems to hit every note. This is really good.

    Great investment

    I'm in love with this whiskey. Amazing taste and incredible smell.
    The linger finish is incredibly satisfying as well.

    A very smooth whiskey

    Bought a bottle and drank it with some friends from Newry ( a stone's throw from Greenore) who agreed that it was one of the best whiskeys we had ever supped. Lovely sweet flavour.

    Recently took on a boy's boat trip to Alaska and this was a HUGE hit. Folks couldn't get enough of it.

    Never a whiskey fan till now

    Discovered this whiskey in Ireland and now am such a huge fan. Once I get through my bottles ill be purchasing several more from this website.

    Worth a dram or two

    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.

    @ Award information is false

    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

    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.

    This whiskey neophyte...

    ... 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.

    V. Nice

    This is my new favourite. At 16 euro a bottle in duty free in Dublin Airport I'm getting through a lot of it.

    Greenore 8 year old

    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!!!!

    Chris' Review

    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.

    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.
