This value priced Irish whiskey is blended from peated and unpeated malts and grain whisky. The brand originates from the A.A. Watt distillery in Derry, in the late 1800's. It’s named after the Inishowen peninsula on the northern tip of Ireland, which was well known as prime for the illicit production of "poteen". (By 1822 there were as many as 800 illicit stills in operation.) This is gently peated with sweet fruity elements and a vein of malty sweetness throughout. It finishes with a slightly spiced bite. It’s a nice balance of malt and grain with whiffs of peat. Score: 89 (Margaret Swaine, WineAlign.com, Mar 2013)
