Tasting Notes

Like its namesake, this whiskey packs a punch delivered straight on the nose from the single pot still origin of these whiskies. But after the first wave of aromatic onslaughts, the spirit settles down and reminds us this is a refined triple-distilled dram with flavors that dance around from golden yellow apples, butterscotch, lanolin, oats and vanilla. The whiskey is juicy and persistent on the palate with a bright finish that pops with white pepper.

Staff Pick Notes

It's like butter... This is everything that Irish whiskey should be. A buttery oily consistency with a clean and slightly citrus flavor. The malt is not hiding in this one either. Although John L Sullivan is a blended whiskey, using both grain and malt whiskey, unlike many Irish blended whiskies on the market (without naming any names) this one gives the impression that they are using a much higher amount of malt whiskey, bringing it close in flavor profile to the more expensive single malts. The fact that John L Sullivan can do all this for about $25 is absolutely banana's! As a whiskey nerd, this is the bottle that I go for when I come home from a long day and just want to put something in my glass that does not demand all of my focus, but still does not leave me disappointed at all should I decide to give it some real attention.
