Kavanagh 12yr Irish Whiskey

  • Distiller:


  • Bottler:


  • ABV:


  • Age:

    12 Years

  • Intro:

    This is a pot stilled Irish whiskey that is 12 years old. There is very little other info out there on it, other than it's provenance hailing from the Teeling distillery. I have a feeling distillate that didn't work for other products ended up in this expression.

  • Nose:

    Peach rings, candy, confectioners sugar. Light, thin, effervescent. Ethanol is definitely present.

  • Taste:

    Thin with no heat. Vanilla cream, charcoal bitterness, short overall without a lot going on. Peach ring candy note is here, though.

  • Finish:

    Short, vanilla, loaded with a thin astringent note. Some more peach candy.

  • Overall:

    This really wasn't good, and unfortunately showcased a lot of flaws. Being sourced, I can tell that whoever distilled this spirit probably expressed some happiness at being able to pawn it off on a different label. Far from the worst I've ever had, but the youth and astringency were generally off putting, in combination with being wholly unremarkable.

  • Score:
