Top Picks for Irish Single Grain Whiskey

Kilbeggan Single Grain Irish Whiskey
90 points
Clear golden amber color. Aromas of pencil eraser, soy milk, and butterscotch with a satiny, crisp, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a peppery, delightful, medium-length toffee and candied banana-tapioca pudding, candied almond with orange blossom water, anise candy and fresh mixed melon balls, and sweet egg custard tart with honey finish. A whiskey that does a 180 from nose to palate with the latter being a deliciously bright study in rich confection.

Brilliant gold color. Fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of pepper, peach marmalade, bananas foster, and acetone with a silky, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a warming, relaxed finish revealing notes of cola float, pepper, nutskins, and mossy stones finish. A young, spicy Irish whisky.

Bright gold color. Aroma of new car with a soft, dry light body and a hot, brief black pepper and bay leaf finish. A college-party-worthy Irish whiskey.
