Roe & Co Irish Whiskey

Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Roe & Co Irish Whiskey to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Roe & Co Irish Whiskey Bottling Note

Released in March 2017, Roe & Co blended Irish whiskey marks Diageo's return to the Irish whiskey category having sold Bushmills a couple of years earlier. Roe & Co is bottled at 45% abv without chill filtration and is a blend of single malt and grain whiskeys matured exclusively in bourbon casks (a high proportion of which are first-fill).

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Creamy, delightfully fragrant and remarkably rounded with notes of soft spice and mellow spun sugar along with warm hints of woody vanilla.

Palate: The quality and perfect balance of the blend is immediately apparent on the palate through its velvety texture and sweet flavours including spiced pears and vanilla.

Finish: Lingering and gentle, ending with a light creaminess.

Roe & Co Irish Whiskey Reviews

Highly recommended

Smooth taste, very gentle delivers on its promises. A great evenings sip.

23rd November 2020

It's a keeper!

Excellent Irish whiskey. Very impressed with the richness, depth of flavour and refined finish. Seems completely undervalued. I'm going to buy a few to stash away, and to give as gifts to whiskey lovers, before it's "discovered" and repriced in line with it's quality.

20th November 2020

Great Irish.

Very impressed smooth but due to the extra 5% produces a nice burn. Good colour and no lingering aftertastes.

17th October 2020

One of the best, stock up!!

I found this in a Maryland discount liquor store for $26 a bottle, I put a case on my shelves. It is great. I usually add water to my whisky, but this at 45% I enjoy it neat. The aroma is beautiful, the taste complex and the finish lingering. My wife doesn't like whisky, but enjoys this.

21st September 2020

Great Irish Blend at an affordable price

We love it! The Roe & Co is our new go to for Irish coffee or an after dinner dram

29th August 2020

Irish whiskey at its best

Great Irish whiskey, very smooth neat and a favourite of mine. Highly recommended!

25th June 2020

Outstanding spirit.

I discovered Roe & Co a few months ago. It has become a new favorite. Excellent flavor, balance and finish.

25th June 2020

Great whisky

Really really smooth straight. No need to add any water, or dare I say it, ice. I like it even better than Kilbeggan Single Grain which is terrific and has been my “go-to” Irish Whisky for years. Looking forward to sharing it with friends and get their opinions.

30th May 2020


This is my go-to Irish whiskey! It is delicious either neat or with ice.

20th April 2020

A brilliant Irish whiskey!

I LOVE this whiskey! On the nose was red apples, candied red fruit, vanilla and a little spice, with the taste it started sweet, then vanilla and finished with a little spice. A lovely rounded whiskey would 100% recommend!

16th April 2020

Best whiskey I've had

By far my favorite whiskey. I was able to buy 2 bottles while in Shannon on a layover while on my way back to the US after my first tour in the Middle East. Down to my last bottle hopefully you will be able to ship here soon I haven't found a whiskey that comes close to being as good as yours.

11th April 2020

I have finished three bottles, I put four more on the shelf!!

This is the first Irish whiskey I have tried that truly rivals my favorite scotches. I pick up Cream and candycane on the nose. I taste cream brulee, mint, lime and fruit on the palate. It is just bursting with flavors. My wife and I both enjoy it neat.

28th February 2020


Very nice nothing else to say

9th February 2020

Give it a try.

My son gave me a bottle for Xmas and when I tasted it I was delighted. Very smooth and easy to sip without adulteration by mixers, ice, water etc. I would highly recommend it to fellow Irish whiskey drinkers.

12th January 2020


My twin sister and I visited your distillery this last October and agreed that this is probably the best Whiskey we've ever tasted. Brought bottles back with us that are now empty. Can't wait for your ability to ship here. Wonderful staff too!!

31st December 2019

need to be able to get it in the U.S.....

It is simply,..Enjoyable..Neat with a cigar...can hang with any more expensive whiskeys

31st December 2019

Smooth easy drinker

I love Jameson’s whiskey but tasting this in Tesco last week we bought a bottle, it’s absolutely fantastic would really recommend this whiskey. Fantastic 😊

18th December 2019

1st Irish attempt.

A very easy drinking whiskey, very smooth almost sweet and a warmth without the burn, an everyday sort of drink. It's not going to be for the fans of peaty or smokey whiskies.

16th December 2019

Love Roe & Co ☘️💚

I am in love with Roe & Co!
Please send it to the United States!

1st December 2019

Excellent can't wait until it comes to the State

Very smooth finish mellow very little after taste no harshness

22nd October 2019


Delightful from its interesting nose to smooth palate and creamy finish

12th October 2019

Excellent and very drinkable

We love this!! It’s become a firm favourite with my husband and I. We’ve always loved a single malt but since trying this two years ago have moved to bourbon. Tastes change like people and change in this case is good!!

15th September 2019

Overpriced for the quality

Good whiskey but overpriced compared to others. I'll give it 2.5 stars because of the flavor but would have been 4 if it was properly priced. This is along the lines of a young whiskey. Let it sit in a barrel for 12 years and then price it accordingly. I won't be buying it again unless it was $20 cheaper

7th September 2019

Too sweet

Maybe just not my preference but I find this whiskey far too sweet, almost syrupy. Was excited to try based on some of the glowing reviews but I think i’ll echo others who have said for the price there are plenty of better tasting whiskeys out there. Save your money.

20th August 2019

Sweet End Note!

I thought I had landed as a Teeling drinker, but Roe & Co compares really well! In fact, I thought it had a bit more complexity than standard Teeling, with a cool, slightly sweet note at the end. I'll be back!

17th July 2019


Somewhere far north of Jameson and a little north of Powers.

11th June 2019

Smoothest whiskey I found. Please import to California ASAP!

I discovered this in Westport Ireland. Brought two bottles home to California but can’t find any more in the states. This is amazing whiskey and I can’t wait till I can buy it here. Nice and smooth with lots of flavor!

31st May 2019


Excellent tipple, smooth could easily be mistaken for a whiskey 3 times the price try it you will not be disappointed

30th May 2019

Fantastic blend

Bought my first bottle last week. Going to buy my second bottle this week. First off the bottle itself is what caught my eye and I’m glad it did because this is very good whiskey. Consistent with spicy pear and that woody vanilla with a very pleasant creamy finish. This whiskey is only going to get better.

15th March 2019

Great in a mixer, straight and even put a shot in some whipped cream for a apple pie

Just spent New Years in Dublin, tried this for the first time, outstanding, excellent taste, brought a bottle back to the states, they will love this stuff over the pond when you export

3rd January 2019

Good whiskey.. Bushmills Black Bush still number 1 in this price range

A very nice whiskey. However Bushmills Black Bush is superior in every way... I will give this a few more years to age and try it again... I think then it will be a really, really nice whiskey.

30th December 2018


First taste and purchase on Tuesday
Very nice indeed

8th December 2018

Its good

I really liked this after thinking I wouldn't. Feels heavier than other blends I've tried which feel thin and don't have as much flavour. Would buy again as it's nice.

17th September 2018

Easy going blend.

This is a great sipping whiskey without having to think to much about the liquid. Not overly complex but there is a lovely pear note from the nose to the finish which evolves and changes and I will buy it again just for that. At this price you can't go wrong.

28th August 2018

Not great

Compared to other whiskey in this price range, I find that this does little to stand out. A bottle of black bush is far better

30th July 2018

Top shelf

Top class whiskey

21st July 2018


Very awesome, smooth, many spicy notes, my new favorite.

8th June 2018

Smells of Vodka, tastes of nothing in particular.

Was bought this as an Xmas gift, being new to whiskey I'm still learning, especially about what I like and don't. I've been lucky enough to try some amazing whiskey, just last night, by chance, I tried Midleton Very Rare 2016, wow! My go to whisky is Dalmore 15, I also like some full on peat Laphroaig now and again. This for me just didn't smell or taste like whiskey, looking at other reviews I wonder if I had an odd batch. It smelled of alcohol, almost like smelling vodka, and then the taste....Wasn't offensive, but wasn't of anything either. Don't know what to do with this stuff, never going to drink it.

7th April 2018

Holds its own against the very best of Jameson or Teelings.

Excellent whiskey !!! Beautiful !!! its everything the producers notes say it is.

5th April 2018

Would buy this product again

Very smooth worth seeking this whiskey out again

29th March 2018

Easy drinking

Enjoyable! I was unsure what to expect, however on nosing and tasting it has a profile very similar to a bourbon (maybe too much). I believe this comes from the fact that the spirit has given way to the first fill bourbon casks. I would recommend giving it a go for its price. It would be a good bottle to pass about at a summer BBQ.

22nd March 2018

Great drink

Bought for the first time last week, i prefer a whiskey that is not peated and has little smoke, this whiskey comes up trumps on both issues, lovely sipping drink, unfortunately half a bottle has gone already, will be certain to buy more.

8th March 2018

One of the best Irish against a very reasonable price. I LOVE it!

One of the best Irish against a very reasonable price!

18th February 2018


I really like Irish whiskeys, they are nearly always beautifully smooth, & silky, the older the smoother, this whiskey is up there , nut sweet, hint of bourbon, & strong, gorgeous on the rocks with a slice of lime.

15th February 2018

A very delightful blend

I am a Speyside single malt devotee, so this would need to be something special - and (for a blended) it is. Honey butteriness on the tongue, vanilla and a wisp of oakiness. Warming and not harsh. Drunk with a single cube of ice, let melt to reduce the temperature and dilute.
Good at any time of the year, it will hit a peak for Christmas, with its subtle flavours that create thoughts of pudding and mince pies (which my wife and I ate at the time of the second glass). My mother would bake our Christmas cake and prick it and rub whisky over it - this would have been divine.
I like to offer guests a choice of whiskey so this would have a place on my table with other brands.

2nd December 2017

Not bad but there are better

For the same price there are better Whiskeys. Poor entry by Diageo. I expect better from them in future. Slane is a better mixed blend in my opinion at this price point

19th November 2017

Enjoyably easy to drink.

As a peat and smoke fan I anticipated needing a bottle of coke. Was pleasantly surprised by how smooth this blend is, sweeter than most and warmly mellow. Difficult not to like if this is what you are looking for.

12th October 2017

Highly recommend

I was pleasantly surprised by this and ended up buying a second bottle!

12th October 2017

Nice smooth whiskey

Tried it in my local pub and had to have a bottle to test it properly

12th September 2017


Literally the worst whiskey I have ever had. It tastes like vodka mixed with a bit of whiskey.

8th September 2017

@Which Batch?


Our current stock is all from Batch 1 but that is not to say the next lot of stock we receive will be the same!

The Chaps @ Master of Malt

3rd August 2017

Which Batch?

Are the bottles in the offer from 'Batch 1'?

3rd August 2017

More like a fruity liqueur than a whiskey, but not bad

Doesnt taste like whiskey to me, more like a variation on a flavored schnapps or other liqueur, with a hint of whiskey. If you're expecting this shock then its not bad at all. There's a lot of light fruit flavour in it, pear in particular and I would love to know how they got that without infusing it with some botanicals.

For me, its definitely a whiskey for mixing, mainly because if its fruity, almost liqueur taste. Looking forward to trying it out in some cocktails but I wont be drinking much of it neat and as i like my whiskey neat, I probably wouldn't get another bottle

10th July 2017

Will certainly be sampling it again.....

Loved it, very smooth and easy on the palate...

19th May 2017

I was all set to hate this

But actually it's pretty good stuff, and for the money it's great. Nice one Diageo.
