Feckin Irish Whiskey

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whiskey differently from me.

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit!

It’s St Patrick’s Day! Following a series of Irish Whiskey tastings in preparation for today I’m ending with “Feckin Irish Whiskey”. Why? Well with  a name like that how could I not try it? Sláinte!

Colour:

Bright gold.

Nose:

Vanilla, oak, butterscotch, slightly floral and slightly fruity.

Palate:

Smooth, butterscotch, slightly spicy, fruity. It does have a bitter edge which builds over time though.

Finish:

Fruity, butterscotch, oak and again a building bitterness.

Overall:

Surprisingly smooth and sweet for a cheap blend which I’d never heard of before. In fact I couldn’t even find a website for the company (maybe I didn’t try hard enough) or any proper tasting notes for this one for comparison. It does however have a bitterness which builds the longer you hold it in your mouth – I recommend if you decide to buy this to drink it quickly and not to try and savor it for too long otherwise it might ruin your evening!

 

Notes:

Taken from Master of Malt Website.

    Feckin Irish Whiskey is a sourced brand put out by Echlinville Distillery in Northern Ireland.
    It was mainly for export but is available now and then in Ireland & UK.
    Very smooth & easy drinking blend.
    No details of original origin.

    1. That’s good to know, I did have quick look for information on it but couldn’t find anything. I only had a sample of it though so didn’t have any info of the bottle to use. Also I probably just didn’t look very hard 😂
