Feckin Irish Whiskey. Image courtesy Feckin/Echlinville Distillery.This Irish whiskey comes from casks distilled and filled at Cooley Distillery and blended by Echlinville Distillery founder Shane Ratliff, and the unusual name might turn some off from a whiskey that offers a clean, consistent if not complex taste.

The nose has notes of buttered popcorn, linseed oil, vanilla, honey, and lemon zest. The taste has good spicy notes of clove and cinnamon along with honey, vanilla, oak, and lemon zest. The finish is short, slightly tart and spicy. Consistent and clean, but lacking somewhat in complexity. (March, 2015)
