After Beam Suntory purchased the Cooley Distillery and its brands, it was decided to replace the Greenore 8 Year bottling with this Kilbeggan 8 Year Single Grain. It is column-distilled from 100% corn mash-bill at the Cooley Distillery and aged at the Kilbeggan Distillery in ex-bourbon barrels. It was launched in travel-retail at the beginning of 2015.

Tasting Notes

"The nose finds menthol and hay along with vanilla and caramel. A little slick on the palate, you'll find pine, maple, and more vanilla notes. The finish is not very complex, but finishes dry with a touch of char smoke."
