Taste Slightly sweet, well rounded, honeyed, biscuity malt with gentle spice.
Aftertaste Burnt macaroon-like notes to a honeyed malty finish with gentle toasted spicy oak. All too quaffable and easy.

Producer's Tasting Notes
Colour: Rich Gold
Nose: Traces of sweet oloroso with sweet malt that overpowers the clean grain.
Taste: The malt moves freely around the palate picking up sweet honey notes. The grain comes into play a little later to form a smooth middle.
Finish: The dryness persists with some genuine woody oak tones coming through.

The ideal whiskey to put in your hip flask for a cold and windy Winter day.

I want to tell you just how good all the kilbeggan whiskey ranges are I was always a single malt drinker but over the last 5 years I have been calling into the kilbeggan distillery whenever in Ireland and will buy 5 or 6 bottles of whiskey from here this visit I bought some 7 bottles the flavour is smooth with a bit of bite and leaves a little tingling on the tongue I cannot put into words the smell its sweet I promise you you will not regret trying this whiskey

This tastes a lot like Bourbon whiskey to me. I guess that this is caused by the fact it is soley matured in ex-Bourbon wood. In any case, I highly recommend this whiskey to those looking for a whiskey with a lot of Bourbon influence.

What a pleasant surprise! I was about to buy a bottle of scotch single malt (again), but decided to give a chance to Kilbeggan. I'm glad I did. Astonishing balanced sherry influence backed by curious soft oak. The finish is long and little dry, very rare indeed in blended whiskies.
