We have picked 3 Irish whiskeys under €40 to get you started on the path to Irish whiskey nirvana. These won’t break the bank but are seriously good starting points for any whiskey drinker.
Slane Irish Whiskey – 40% ABV – €33.00 @ Celtic Whiskey Shop
Slane Whiskey is a blended whiskey from Slane Distillery in Co Meath that has been aged in three different casks – virgin American oak, seasoned bourbon casks and ex-oloroso sherry casks. It is bursting with the aromas of caramel, butterscotch, brown spice and toasted oak. It has a lovely spicy edge to the taste and finishes with caramel and fruits. Seriously easy to drink and great on the pocket.
It retails for around €33 – which is amazing for the quality of the liquid. The whiskey can be found nearly all over Ireland and in parts of the States, Germany and the UK. Check your local whisky shop or online below

The Irishman Founders Reserve – 40% ABV – – €34.99 @ Celtic Whiskey Shop
The Irishman comes from the Walsh Distillery in Co.Carlow. This is somewhat of a premium blend as it uniquely contains no cheap, grain whiskey in the mix. The only spirits blended in are single malt and single pot still whiskey. On the nose it has hints of ginger, apples and honey. It’s a lovely dram at any price.

Buy in USA @ ABC Fine Wine & Spirits or only $32.99
West Cork Black Cask – 40% ABV – €36.99 @ Celtic Whiskey Shop
This blend from West Cork Distillers has been finished in double charred American oak barrels. This charring gives the whiskey enhanced vanilla flavours, sweetness as well as a dark – almost chestnut – colour. Yet this is a light whiskey to sip on with both a smooth texture and a burnt spice taste on the tongue. Great whiskey at an unbeatable price.
