Drombeg Original, 22%, Liqueur

I’m slowly working my way through all the whiskeys available to buy in my local Dunnes store.

A bottle I’ve avoided up until now eventually made it into my basket.

Drombeg Original.

It was one of West Cork Distillers first offerings – and is a mainstay on the whiskey shelves at Dunnes.

Despite looking like a whiskey – golden brown in colour – at only 22% – clearly isn’t.

There is no mention of whiskey on the label either – so perhaps ‘spirit drink’ or ‘liqueur’ would be a more apt descriptor.

The nose is caramelly sweet – the label states added E150a – a bit of vanilla with a hint of woodiness too.

Initially watery – not a great deal going on  – a slight touch of heat towards the finish – some soft woody spice – but the sweetness dominates.

Rather empty.

The back label suggests a serving with ginger ale.

Probably a good idea.
