I must say after years of looking for an exceptional Whiskey that I can enjoy, it is great that I found this one.
It is smooth, yet distinctly flavorful and it seems to me that it is a very pure and properly produced Whiskey. Much appreciation to Kilbeggan for crafting such a superb Whiskey.
I will continue to enjoy this wonderful product as long as I draw breath. No more searching :. The only thing i dislikw about this whiskey is the added coloring agent "Caramel color", please make this fine whiskey without added Caramel color.
That would be great. Thank You! If you do not change things they will stay as they are,and that is fantastic.
Keep up the great work,your distillers have heavenly hands. Truly one from the gods. The only alcohol that I drink is Irish Whiskey and I've tried numerous brands.
Had my first bottle of Kilbeggan last November and I was stunned at how good it is for the price, so much so that I bought 6 bottles.
Need I say more? I first tasted this whiskey in an "Irish" pub in Montreal. I immediately got that feeling If the atmosphere of a true Irish pub could be transformed into a whiskey, this would be it.
Kilbeggan tastes like the inside of an old pub in Ireland! I'm quite surprised by the reviews saying that this whiskey is harsh or tastes "chemical".
I found it quite smooth and sweet, myself. The smell can only be described as terpentine mixed with an hint of acetone.
It truly stings the nostrils. And the taste offer in no way any improvements on that worringly first impression. It has a medicinal feel to it, no notes whatsoever other then purely chemical.
Thankfully I was offered a glass of it, before I had time to buy a bottle, hence saving me from a lot of grief. However; well worth waiting for and not to be dished out to others lightly.
I can understand how the Irish pot still whiskeys had the monopoly on the market till a years ago due wars civil and other which was to the Scots advantage I find it to be very smooth and easily drinkable.
It's not harsh and goes down clean. It's reasonably smooth and flavorful, doesn't need mixed to enjoy it at least. I really enjoy my whiskeys from glenmorangie to Glenfiddich.
Was in Athlone in july Bought a few bottles of Kilbeggan Whiskey from the distillery. Beautiful smooth taste, 1 of my favorites i have to say.
Will be buying a Case in the new year. I have had Jamesons and Paddy before and found Kilbeggan a bit of a disappoinment to my palate - I usually expect a more peaty flavour from an Irish whiskey.
I was turned on to this by a tour guide in Ireland 6 years ago and it has been my go to whiskey ever since, I was settling for Jameson before that, but this not only made me reconsider my choice, but also led me to explore other lesser known entry level Irish Whiskeys, glad I did because there are many other great ones that aren't as well known as Jameson such as Powers, Tyrconnell, and Teeling, this is stil my favorite though.
My grand children bought me a bottle for Christmas, which I opened and poured a sizable glass there and then. I thought it a little harsh at the time so I put the lid back on and continued the day with my bottle of Scotch.
However, after a month or so when the Scotch had run out I took a dram of the Kilbeggan. A different feel about it altogether. Smooth and full in the mouth.
Had some of the harshness evaporated into the airspace at the top of the bottle?? Who knows, but its a lovely drop now. Loved it.
Was given a little bottle and will be getting a big one. Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey, however, is a creature of a different lineage.
As stated before, it is named for the distillery rather than actually made there. The brand predates the reactivation of the distillery, and as a blended Irish whiskey, much of the content comes from whiskey types that cannot even be made at Kilbeggan.
According to some early reports, pot still whiskey made at the distillery was not even supposed to become available until One of the things that sets Kilbeggan apart from most of the other whiskeys in Ireland is that it is double distilled, in much the same way as things are done in Scotland and the United States.
Defenders of double vs. Whether it be grain or malt, all the whiskey in Kilbeggan is aged in ex-bourbon barrels for at least three years.

In the early part of the 20th century, Kilbeggan, like many Irish whiskey distilleries at the time, entered a period of decline. This was due to the combined effects of loss and hampering of market access - due to prohibitio n in the United States, the trade war with the British Empire , shipping difficulties during the world wars, and Irish Government export quotas; as well as competition from blended Scotch, and disruption to production during the Irish war of Independence.
As a result, Kilbeggan was forced to cease production of new spirit for 7 years between and , decimating the company's cash flow and finances.
