Kilbeggan 8 yo, Single Grain, 40%

Review #572
Formerly known as Greenore 8 year old. So light in the smell that I can hardly pick anything up… After a couple of minutes some mild white fruits, like apples and pears, a little citrusy notes and some sugary sweetness comes forward.

Much more flavour in the taste. That was quite surprising! Some burned caramel, a little roughness, honey and vanilla. The finish die rather fast and not much else happens, but some caramel sweetness stays behind.

This is a bit rough in the taste, but a fine dram. A bit more flavourful than young grain whiskies at 40% usually are. Nothing special, but a nice, easy drinking, everyday dram. I will give this 80/100 (19/21/20/20).
