John L. Sullivan "Irish Bourbon" Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1242827

IMPORTANT: Do not mistake this quirky little whiskey as a gimmicky or one-off collectable. While attempting to introduce something new to the market, the folks behind John L. Sullivan whiskey might have just struck gold. When you taste the Sullivan "Irish Bourbon" (a name that has already been banned by the U.S. Federal Government, so don't expect to see this label for much longer), you'll understand exactly what we mean. Imagine all the smooth, easy-drinking, and sweet-barley character of your favorite Jameson bottle, but add in the rich oak flavor of your favorite Bourbon on the finish. Whoever blended these two components together did so with an absolutely masterful touch. The creamy texture of 10 year old Irish goodness (aged in sherry, no less) melds harmoniously and seamlessly with the bold American whiskey character. Rather than losing their identities in the process, these two whiskies elevate one another and improve their finest aspects. In fact, this whiskey is so good you might find yourself adding a bit of Redbreast to your next glass of Buffalo Trace, or vice versa. Beware of buying this bottle, however: it won't last the week once you open it. This whiskey is simply too delicious and too drinkable to sip slowly.

This whiskey is a pleasant surprise. It has nice, soft, inviting aromas with hints of vanilla and soft fruity overtones. This continues in the mouth, making it easy to drink and a pure pleasure.

I was happily surprised when I tasted this unique blend of different whiskies. I was assuming it would be more of a gimmick for gimmick's sake. However, it was really fun and enjoyable to sip on. Light vanilla and floral notes in the nose; the palate was rather soft and creamy, with a pleasant texture. There was very little heat on the finish and just a touch of spice. Definitely worth checking out as a nice alternative to a traditional straight bourbon.

I was confused by the name at first..."Irish Bourbon...?" But it's exactly what is says on the tin (or bottle)...a marriage of Irish Whiskey and Bourbon. "But why?" I hear you say...why create such a mutt? Well because it combines the drinkability of Irish Whiskey with the richer textures and flavors of Bourbon! It's built from up to ten year old base spirits so not only is it deliciously drinkable but at this price point it's a steal as well. There's nothing contrived about this bottling, it's not trying too hard to be just wants to be drunk and enjoyed plain and simple...

This is just supremely drinkable whiskey, plain and simple. It's everything you love about Irish whiskey with an extra kick. A no-brainer.

Just like I have no desire to eat at the French Laundry every single night of the week, I have no desire to drink Macallan 30 or Pappy Van Winkle after work on a Wednesday. I like coming home to a beer and a shot at 7:30 PM most days and this bottle of Sullivan "Irish Bourbon" just became my new go-to. They pretty much did the impossible here. They improved what was already a classic style of whiskey. I may start combining all my Midleton Rare into my Wild Turkey editions from now on. I'm hooked.

This unusual blend of Irish & Bourbon Whiskey surprised me with its round, easygoing, and completely delicious drink-ability. This isn't just for the whiskey guy that has to try everything, this great tasting easy going drinking for anyone who loves brown water. The clean, refreshing, light Irish side of this bottle is the perfect match for the sweet oak and extroverted corn sweetness of its Bourbon side. Yum!
