  • Excerpt: 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey is a fairly standard Irish Whiskey that would work well for a St. Paddy’s celebration, but I don’t see myself ever drinking it outside of that.

  • Excerpt: The wood spices come through right at the finish line. The double distillation may account for the fullness of the whiskey.

  • Excerpt: The taste starts off light and thin, but a strong pepperiness kicks in with lemon and honey notes underneath, along with touches of malt in the background. The finish is light, long, and spicy.

  • Excerpt: For those looking for it-goes-down-easy shots or a fairly neutral base for a cocktail, 2 Gingers is tough to beat. For serious drinking (Irish or otherwise), it doesn’t have quite enough backbone for my tastes.

  • Excerpt: Honestly, not so bad. This comes as quite a shock, since it's extremely affordable and marketed primarily to bars, but a good surprise is always welcome here and there. I bet it makes a great substitute in a mule with those citrus and honey notes.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    Distilled by Kilbeggan in Ireland, this Irish whiskey is imported and sold as a fairly approachable Irish whiskey, and it appears to be most selectively marketed for cocktails.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, malty, a bit of citrus. Faint pepper, some sweet honey. Not super complex, but entirely approachable.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate. Honey, toffee, a bit of ginger, pepper, light salinity and rising bread.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish. Sweet honey, some lemon zest, pepper, a hint of rising bread.

  • Overall:

    Honestly, not so bad. This comes as quite a shock, since it's extremely affordable and marketed primarily to bars, but a good surprise is always welcome here and there. I bet it makes a great substitute in a mule with those citrus and honey notes.
