Tasty Tastings Episode 68

I just reviewed the The Quiet Man Traditional Irish Whiskey, and while we are at it, let’s have also a look at The Quiet Man 8 Year Old.


The Quiet Man 8 Year Old

The Quiet Man 8 Year Old









Name: The Quiet Man 8 Year Old
Bottler: Niche Drinks
Age: 8 Years Old
Category: Irish Single Malt Whiskey
Cask Type: 1st Fill Bourbon Barrels
Strength: 40.0% Vol
Colored: Yes
Chill Filtered: Yes


Soft and a bit retrained in the nose. Apples and peaches, balanced by sweet malt and oak cookies. Marzipan and milk chocolate raisins, accompanied by soft touches of marshmallows and candy floss.


Light with a creamy mouthfeel. Lemons and grapefruits, sweetened with brown sugar. Peaches, bitter almonds and licorice emerge, along with some oak. Ends with dark malt.


Medium and slightly spicy. Menthol, vanilla beans and oat cookies with nuts.


A “quiet man” indeed, maybe a bit too quiet overall. I think a few more years of maturation wouldn’t have hurt, as well as a higher ABV (let’s say 43%). As it is, this is a by all means very enjoyable single malt. Light and approachable, perfect for summer!

Score: 84 / 100
