Proof66 Notes

Greenore is a label of "single grain" Irish whiskeys, which differs from "single malt" in that the latter is 100% barley while the former is 100% corn. The name comes from the port where corn grain was imported into Ireland. The corn grain provides a sweeter, lighter character to the whiskey than typical with malt whiskey. Please note, lacking its own category and wanting to distinguish it from malt whiskey, we opted to list it as a "blended whiskey." Greenore 15yr is a "single grain whiskey" and a much older expression than the younger 8yr... it is remarkably old-aged for corn whiskey in our experience.

While not a competition we officially follow because it's constrained to whisky, the Greenore 15yr won Best Grain Whisky at the venerable and respected Whisky Magazine's 2011 World Whiskies Award. This followed up the same Best Grain Whiskey title in the 2010 World Whiskey Awards from Whisky Magazine.

Cooley Distillery launched in 1987 as the after converting a potato ethanol plant on the Cooley Peninsula by John Teeling. Their stated aim is to revive historical brands and traditional distilling of Irish whiskey. Cooley purchased several labels to give the new label credibility (Tyrconnel, fro example). They mature their whiskey at the site of Kilbeggan and today produce a wide range of different styles. In January, 2012, they were acquired by Beam, Inc (itself later acquired by Suntory) and became the Kilbeggan Distilling Company.
