Interestingly, Kilbeggan is double distilled instead of the usual triple distillation process which is more synonymous to Irish whiskey. It results in a more robust character with some very light peatiness. Kilbeggan contains a low amount of malt at 15 to 20 percent and is aged in mostly first fill bourbon casks with a smaller portion from second and third fill barrels.

|Nose||Sweet caramel, vanilla and toasted wood aromas. Delicate malt and clean grain become more apparent with time.|
|Palate||Soft almond nougat, peach, caramel and vanilla flavours before finishing quickly with soft, light malt sugar flavours.|
|Finish||Dryness persists alongside with some genuine woody oak tones.|
