  • Excerpt: As you’d expect, the Kilbeggan Small Batch Rye flavor profile is notably much softer than our traditional American rye whiskies. However, what’s interesting here is the combination of rye, malt and barley delivers a smooth, creamy, oily-like juice with a stiffening rye spiciness that makes this whiskey stand out from traditional Irish whiskey.

  • Excerpt: Easy to drink, sweet and smooth whiskey with a rye twist. Bought it with 27 euros, bang for buck dram if you ask me! Palate gives most of its rye notes, aromas and finish don’t.
