Michael Collins Blended Irish Whiskey is no longer available due to Beam’s Acquisition of the Cooley distillery a few years ago. When they did they cut off almost everyone from being able to bottle Cooley whiskey as their own, thus striking a big blow to NDPs like Sidney Frank Importing Co. who bottled and imported the Michael Collins line.
Region: Cooley Peninsula, Ireland
Bottler: Sidney Frank Importing Co.
Decent amount of malty sweetness with notes of caramel apples, honey, orchard fruit, mild spice, and some light toasty notes. There is a bit of darkness slowly moving beneath the rest of the nose.
Malty and fruity with notes of dark sweets, spice, vanilla and citrus rind. That same dark undertone from the nose appears on the palate
Long spicy malty finish with hints of dark sweets and wood that fade to grain alcohol.
BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
Ok balance with a medium body and an easy smooth texture.
