Millars Irish Whiskey

Tasting Notes Review

Millars Special Reserve Irish Whiskey Tasting Notes


The Millars Special Reserve Irish Whiskey brand originates from a company in Dublin called Adam Millar & Company.


In 1987, Cooley Distillery, the only independent Irish owned distillery in Ireland acquired the rights to the A. A. Millar brands. However, it wasn’t until September 1994 that Cooley formally re-launched Millar’s Special Reserve Irish Whiskey.


The brand reflects the classic atmosphere of the 1920's and 1930's, a time when writers like Joyce, O'Casey and Yates raised the Irish spirit and in so doing contributed to the birth of the Irish nation.


This is a unique blend of the finest grain and malt Irish whiskeys with exceptional character and superior quality. It is double distilled and matured almost entirely in once used oak bourbon casks. The character of the whiskey comes primarily from the quality malt barley specially chosen to give the whiskey a unique smooth after taste A darker, full bodied, smooth whiskey in the traditional Irish sense


It has been awarded two bronze medals, one at the International Spirits Challenge (May 1996) and the other at the International Wine and Spirits Competition (July 1996).


Millars Special Reserve Irish Whiskey Tasting Notes


Tasting notes of Jim Murray, renowned Whiskey Commentator provided by the Cooley distillery.


Nose:-Sweet grape on the nose joining forces with the grain to offer a lush sweetness alongside the harder, oakier grains.


Taste: - Very malty start followed by a very powerful grain which is fruity. Not a light whiskey at all. Full mouth feel, slight grapeness with good weight sherry in evidence.


Finish: - Very favourable bourbon finish feel of a five year old minimum with seven plus.


Serving Suggestions: - Neat, on the rocks, or with water to taste. Equally good served with mixers or as an ingredient for Irish Coffee. A sipping whiskey for all occasions
