Kilbeggan is a blended Irish whiskey brand that is double rather than triple distilled. It matures for a minimum of four years in ex-bourbon barrels. The Kilbeggan Distillery was restored in 2010 after previously being a museum and warehouse for aging whiskeys made at Cooley Distillery. Kilbeggan itself was distilled at Cooley Distillery so older bottlings may reflect that.

Tasting Notes

"A very quaffable whiskey, Kilbeggan is light and smooth with light cereal and honey notes. The finish isn't very long, but that is just fine, particularly on a hot, humid day."
