Continuing my exploration of recent Irish Whiskey offerings that may have slipped into history are these 2 blends.
Uisce Beatha Real Irish Whiskey, 40%
Released by ROKDrinks – a large multinational company with a varied range of branded products.
Pale in colour – which I always find reassuring. Quite light & gentle nose. Surprisingly rich depth on the palate of sweet vanilla. Lovely warmth to this one with a pleasant prickly frisson on the finish.
Celtic FC Irish Whiskey, 40%
Celtic Football Club have released a number of whiskeys over the years for their fans to enjoy.
Pale golden brown. A very gentle nose that grudgingly gives up soft aromas of sweet vanilla. Mild palate that sits easily in the mouth slowly warming to a fruity sweet finish.
Both of these blends offer easy accessible drinking. There’s no jagged edges or bold off-putting flavours to deter. For my tastes Uisce Beatha does it with more flair & would score the goals in this round.
