Proof66 Notes

The Michael Collins label is owned by the Sidney Frank Importing Company, founded by entrepreneur Sideny Frank. They own a number of labels, perhaps most notably Jagermeister and Tommy Bahama rums. In March, 2013, Sidney Frank filed a lawsuit against Beam claiming they did not honor their existing supply contracts in place since 2006 (which they inherited with Cooley).

Michael Collins Irish Whiskey is a blend of malt and grain Irish whiskey, as most standard Irish whiskeys are. It is double-distilled, in contrast to most Irish whiskeys, which are triple-distilled. This should lead to a bolder, less smooth product, and in fact Michael Collins is a bit bolder than some of its competitors.

The flavor on the tongue is malty, a bit sweet with some hints of raisins and a touch of smoke. If someone handed you a shot and told you it was Scotch, you might not call them on it, although it doesn’t quite have the unique character I expect from a decent Scotch. This whiskey will bring a little more to a cocktail and a bit more edge to an Irish Coffee, but still be very sippable should the mood strike. A reasonable value and worth a try if you’re looking to expand beyond the standards. For the complete review, and more like it, please visit ProfessorCocktail.com.

This stuff is ok. Definitely drinkable but wouldn't be my first choice.
