The name is not entirely politically correct (see also here), but Danny Boy is nonetheless Irish Whiskey true and true.
Give Danny Boy — distilled by Cooley Distillery — a little time in the glass before you dig in: It’s got some heat that mellows after a few minutes with exposure to air. Your patience will be rewarded with a surprisingly easy spirit, a fresh and young Irish with grain character that is laced with apple and some caramel notes. Not a lot to it, really, but it’s nicely refreshing, leaving a touch of honey on the tongue.
Get going, the pipes are calling.
