'Gold Medal' and 'Exceptional'
Golden amber color. Lush honeyed peach, pear and tapioca aromas with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a long, warming baking spices, cake, nut, and mineral finish. A delicious and smooth fireside sipper.

Kilbeggan, once overshadowed by its stable-mates, is the rising star in the Cooley repertoire; an active distillery once more and capable of thoroughbred gems like this. This isn’t your typical Irish whiskey at all, so be warned. Sure there are lashings of soft caramel, peach crumble, and vanilla up front, but then the wood takes over and big waves of tannin and chili pepper kick in. It’s 40% ABV but it delivers a much harder punch. Limited edition release.
Sunny, pleasant and floral. Barley sweetness, boiled sweets (sherbet lemons), candy. Beautifully sweet palate, but also complex given time - flowery, exotic fruits (banana, orange zest, star-fruit, papaya) balanced by dates, light ginger cake and tea-chests.
Kilbeggan is Gaelic for “little church”. Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey first appeared as a John Locke’s brand over 100 years ago and was sold successfully until Locke’s distillery ceased production in the 1950′s. Locke’s distillery is the oldest continuously licensed whiskey distillery in the world dating back to 1757. Drawing on centuries of tradition and craft, Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey is distilled from the purest clear water and the finest malted Irish barley and maize, gently matured for long years in oak casks in the ancient warehouses in Kilbeggan and skilfully blended to create a whiskey of unique smoothness, character and balance. Cooley Distillery relaunched the Kilbeggan brand in 1994 and since then it has had continued success in the market place.
