Clontarf Single Malt Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Jim Murray

    • Nose:

      Sharp, grassy maltiness and a touch salty. Full of character.

    • Taste:

      Ultra malty start, rich textured and mouthwateringly in the Clontarf style.

    • Finish:

      Varying shades of malt, then a late oaky complexity.

    • Comments:

      A deceptively distinguished malt that offers more complexity than first meets the eye.

    As for me Irish whiskey is good and better. This tipple falls into the "Better" A nice relaxing tipple that has a sweetness to it, I'd buy and have bought this one again

    You can do well at this price in Irish whiskey, but they have recently sneaked in a couple of stinkers we won't mention. Clontarf is head and shoulders above the fray and for the money it is in my top five whiskey values. As pleasant a surprise as Elijah Craig 12 is to bourbon. Give it a go. Putting my finger on it I get hazelnut after a clean nose. Understated vanilla lingers through the finish. Can't lose.

    Eexcellent absolutely first class one I shall buy in the future

    I bought this fine single malt because of the price and the fact it came recommended. I was going to use it for mixing with ginger ale. After sampling it, I have decided it is now my Irish Whiskey for sipping as well. Luckily, there is a source where I live who currently have a nice supply so I will purchase as much as I can and be happy for a long time!! Joe W. March 18th, 2012

    At first sniff, it smells sweet. This is before the first taste which is like liquid liquorice. At second taste, I get chocolate. Not at all harsh, no burn but a smooth caramel sweetness that makes you smile with pleasure as it slips down. Be selfish with this single malt, be very selfish indeed.

    Very good taste for the price, go buy it now

    I can find nothing wrong with the single malt except it isn't available ANYWHERE in the US. I even called the distributor who told me it is no longer being imported. Total bummer!

  • Adam 14 February 2011

    A bit too easy on the palate; the bottle hasn't lasted very long at all. I write this review as I order my next bottle.

  • Danny Hughes 20 January 2011

    I tried a bottle of Clontarf with high expectations, but was disappointed. It is smooth and, a touch creamy and there is a little smoke, but it seems unbalanced. The various elements of flavor clash and disappear quickly with virtually no finish.

    the best single malt I ever tasted

  • David Brown 22 July 2010

    Absolutely superb. Smooth and delicious

  • Mark (Whivie.be) 12 November 2009

    Very smooth indeed! I believe this dram has been neglected for a very long time and is underappreciated. I enjoyed it thouroughly!
