#8 Whisky of the Year - 2020 - Whisky Advocate - 93 points. Irish Whiskey is STILL having its moment, unrestrained from too many rules on production, they are free to experiment with many production techniques from distillation to barrel aging. This beauty is such a good value. At $49.99 you get the soft, mellow texture of a Pot-distillation followed by orange marmalade and clove. There’s 2.5% oats in the mashbill which AGAIN adds to the creaminess on the finish. Watch out Redbreast 12yr!
