Irish Mist – The Original Honey Liqueur
Well it’s all about the Honey these day. Jack Daniels Honey, Bushmills Honey and so on and now Irish Mist Honey.
Irish Mist is an Irish whiskey-based liqueur. It is one of the first, if the first liqueur to be produced in Ireland and it seems to have a great rep overseas.
I have tried Irish Mist original a few times and really liked it. You get that lovely warm feeling from the Irish Whiskey along with a mouthful of dark spices and even some coco in there to booth. So when I saw a bottle of the Honey version I just had to give it a go.
This Irish whiskey-based liqueur is the same as the original, apart from the honey that is. But it has a soft sweetness to it. You’ll find all the whiskey and spice flavours still there and these flavours are not overpowered by the honey. In fact the honey seems to bring all the flavours together to give you a really enjoyable drink.
You can buy a bottle in all good Off Licences and it will set you back around €35.00.
