Michael Collins Blended Irish Whiskey

I'm not a whiskey connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination…but I know what I like and Michael Collins Blended whiskey fits the bill.

Made by the last independent distillery in Ireland it’s a double distilled blend of malt Irish whiskey and grain Irish whiskey, aged 4 years in bourbon casks.

How would I describe Michael Collins…smooth, silky and very versatile. I say it’s perfect for the novice whiskey drinker like myself; but also suitable for someone with a more experienced/complex palate.

We recently did a blind taste test with some of our friends; all of which choose Michael Collins over Jameson.
I highly recommend you grab a bottle and see for yourself.


  1. I'm not a big whiskey drinker but I would definitely give this a try! Thanks for the review!

  2. I love the fact that you clearly say you know what you like. The adventure of trying different things drives us, but the comfort of flavors and aromas that you know will make you happy keep us grounded. I have never had this selection before and will definitely keep my eye out for it.


  3. My husband really likes whiskey (although we don't drink it often) This might be a great addition to his xmas gifts! I hope you have a great afternoon. Stay warm and safe!

  4. I love whiskey so yes, I will try the Michael Collins. Usually if I am in the mood for a whiskey I drink Bushmills. Sounds great, good post :-)

  5. I'm not a big whiskey drinker but this certainly sounds like it would warm you right up!
