The Quiet Man Irish Whiskey pair of the blended expression as well as the 8 year old single malt come from the Ireland town of Derry. Known for a rather sordid and at times violent history, the town now boasts the first whiskey there in more than 100 years. Quiet Man is currently in the process of building their own distillery in the town as well. 

We enjoyed both of these pours. As you might expect, the blend is mild and smooth and while good, does not possess a ton of depth on the palate. 

The 8 year on the other hand is complex enough to make you feel the age behind it, but still smooth enough to not be turned away. Really nice single malt flavor, with hints of fruit midway through and then a fading spice at the end. 

Overall these are two really nice expressions for anybody wanting to venture into the Irish Whiskey realm that may not have much experience. Our official rating is:

Quiet Man Blend - 7.5/10

Quiet Man 8 Year Single Malt - 8/10
