My 1st Irish whiskey – Kilbeggan

Purchased my first ever Irish whiskey.  I figured why not try a few before the trip to see if there is a personal preference.

Kilbeggan1“Kilbeggan is a traditional Irish whiskey, double distilled, the old way, to preserver more flavour whilst retaining the classic Irish smoothness.  The Kilbeggan distillery was founded in 1757 and is Ireland’s oldest continually licensed distillery – and to this day still has its own working waterwheel.”

As advertised Kilbeggan is smooth but it does not have a lot of flavour like so many single malt Scotch whiskeys.  Is this what all of the Irish whiskey’s are going to like?  I’ll find out over the coming year.  This review recommends sticking to Jameson for Irish whiskey.

Price at NBLCC = $37.99
