Not awful, but there are many better Irish whiskeys in the same price range or cheaper.

I really am sorry to have to pan this whiskey, but the bottle of this whiskey that I had smelled like M16 gun cleaning oil and tasted bad. (I was in the US Army Reserve years ago, and I still have a part can of M16 gun oil. A few hours after I tasted the whiskey, I smelled that old M16 gun oil can. Yep, the Kilbeggan smelled like the gun oil.) Maybe, I got a bad bottle with some sort of bad cut during distillation. I don't know. In any case, this Kilbeggan was outright bad. I would not buy this whiskey again and would so inform others.

It does have a soapy taste. It's a combination of the oak and something I could not quite put my finger on. It has lots of burn and is hot all the way down. I tried it neat, with water and on the rocks. I just could not find anything that made this drinkable to me.

Mild Irish Whiskey flavor, but I can't get over the soapy taste. Most people like this, so to each his own. I would spend a few dollars more and get Powers which is exceptional.
