It is St. Patrick’s time and who better to spend it with this year than 2 Gingers. No, I am not talking about Christina Hendricks and Deborah Ann Woll, though that would make for an awesome St. Patricks Day. 2 Gingers is a great Irish Whiskey produced by the Kilbeggan Distilling Company.
2 Gingers is aged for 4 years, a young spirit but indeed a tasty one. 2 gingers has a deep golden brown color. The aroma is very citrus forward with touches of apple and a bit of apricot. There is a great malt presence in the underlying aromas with a bit of honey peaking through.
On the palette 2 Gingers is a treat, a spicy treat. This is a peppery whiskey, there is a distinct black pepper note in the flavor with a slight hint of winter spices. This is a great Irish whiskey neat, over ice or used as a base for a superb cocktail.
2 Gingers Irish Whiskey, sells at a suggested retail price of $19.99 for a 750ml bottle. For the price point I must say this is a great bottle of whiskey.
