Tasting Notes

"Fans of light-bodied Irish whiskey may be taken aback by the brashness of Old Kilfountan; at 86 proof and just 18 months of age, it's a little rough around the edges. Its graininess on the palate is matched by a healthy dose of peppery spice, matched by a moderate sweetness from the oak. Old Kilfountan is a touch hot for sipping straight, but it serves nicely on the rocks. "
