Review: Slane Castle Irish Whiskey

Share

It’s not just a drawing on the label of this whiskey. There really is a Slane Castle. It’s even in Ireland, thank the stars.

Slane Castle Irish Whiskey is a new whiskey on our shores, and it’s now becoming available on the eastern seaboard. Created by the good folks at Cooley Distillery, it’s a young blend, traditionally crafted without peat and aged about four years in old bourbon barrels.

The result is a very young whiskey that’s still finding its legs: Lightly sweet, with strong grassy notes and solid wood on the finish. Not very complex, but easy to drink It’s a bit boozy up front, though, a sign of its immaturity and youth. Worth a try if you’re an Irish fan, but nothing you’ll go crazy over.

    I WAS IN IRELAND IN OCTOBER 2010 AND PURCHASED A BOTTLE. CARING DILIGENTLY THROUGH CUSTOMS, I AM SIPPING A DOUBLE FINGER OVER ICE WITH A BUD AS I WRITE. NICE TASTE, MUCK LIKE A MID-LEVEL KENTUCKY BREW, THIS SINGLE BARREL IS A NICE BREAK FROM THE OTHER DISTILLED BROWNS I TASTE. ALSO NICE TO HAVE AN IRISH HOMELAND DRINK. GOD BLESS, DENNIS D
