It seems that the Irish whisky brands really took advantage of St. Patrick’s Day, with two consecutive weeks of virtual tastings with Irish whisky brands. The most recent one was with Teeling, hosted by Robert Caldwell.
The complexity of what Spirits of French Lick does shows up in the glass, as this is a stunner. I was surprised at how grain-driven this bourbon is, I can tell the “Respect the Grain” motto is a core focus.
Gouden Carolus Single Malt is an enjoyable whisky that is best suited to a warm evening. Considering the reasonable price, it’s the kind of dram I’d have on my shelf regularly, as a relaxing companionship when the evening demands it.
Echlinville’s own pot still within the whiskey gives fans a little taste of the great things that will undoubtedly come to this distillery when they start bottling their own. This is a welcome addition to their range: it is something unique to Dunville’s and practicable for those who like to mix it up with a cocktail, but there are bigger and greater things to come for this brand.
a pair of Luxco whiskies that are the subject of today’s review. As noted immediately above, MGP plans to continue sourcing whiskey from Kentucky (almost certainly Heaven Hill) to support these brands, meaning that they’re unlikely to change much following the merger of the two companies.

Consequently, here I go with my first Irish whisky reviews on Malt.
