Clontarf Blended Whiskey

Clontarf Irish Classic Blend review

Clontarf Classic is a blended Irish whiskey that used to be a single grain whiskey from Cooley distillery. That’s not the case anymore, nowadays this Irish dram contains a very small amount of malt. The grain comes from Irish Distillers. Jim Murray scored Clontarf Classic Blend 86 points, so in […]

Bushmills 21 year old Rare review

I heard lots of good things about Bushmills 21 year old Rare single malt before we had an Irish whiskey tasting with our local whisky club. And believe me, those good things turned out to be true. Truly, a magnificent whiskey by the Northern Ireland distillery, The Old Bushmills. I’ve […]

Connemara 12 year old is another peated Irish single malt whiskey by Cooley distillery. Unlike many Irish whiskeys (which are triple distilled), Connemara is double distilled. Other brands under the Cooley distillery include Kilbeggan, Greenore and Tyrconnell. Because of new Irish invasion of distillers, Cooley malt can be found from […]

Teeling Single Grain Cabernet Cask Finish review

This Irish whiskey surely is not the most usual dram, you will bump into. Single grain whiskies aren’t made that much at the moment. And on top of that, Teeling decided to finish their single grain in Californian Cabernet Sauvignon casks. In 2014, it won “World’s Best Grain” at the World […]

Connemara Peated whiskey review

Connemara Peated Irish Single Malt is what I call, a contender. Contender in the world of peated whiskies – not a super heavyweight nor even a heavyweight. Nice addition into the smoky whisky category. It really got me excited to try Connemara’s whole range, especially the Connemara Turf Mor. ON […]

Bushmills 16 year old “Three Wood” single malt review

Had a great Irish INTERMISSION with this dram Enjoyed in an intermission of a Team Finland’s important hockey game, this was like the Irish movie Intermission – humorously dark and good. Like this dram’s eccentric nose. Bushmills 16YO Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a wee light on the taste but […]
