Awards/Reviews:

95 Points, Finalist, Great Value - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022

"The incredibly layered and complex nose with aromas of cardamom, vanilla beans, allspice, and nutmeg is inviting and intriguing. The palate displays a silky texture with a touch of wood tannin dryness that creates a pleasant and complex profile. Tropical fruit and dried flowers become more evident through the long finish."

Gold - SF World Spirits Competition 2021

94 Points, Top 100 of 2021, Best Buy - Wine Enthusiast

"Billed as a triple cask whiskey, the liquid was finished in barrels that previously held Sherry, bourbon and Marsala. The result is a cinnamon and faint floral aroma, and a palate that sizzles with baking spice. It eventually mellows into flavors of vanilla wafer, cocoa and dried fig, finishing with gingery zing." (Highest Rated and only Best Buy among top Irish whiskey blends)

"Quite impressive, especially considering it’s bottled at just 80 proof and available for under $30 bucks! The mouthfeel is quite nice and the finish keeps you coming back for more. The Busker Triple Cask Triple Smooth is an absolutely stunning value, a bottle I recommend picking up!" - Whiskey Consensus

"Shows what can be done with a blend when you start with good components and lean heavily into the malt instead of the grain. Everything comes together nicely here and ends up being an easy-sipping, and easy mixing, whiskey." - The Whiskey Jug

“Leaves other similarly-priced competitors in the dust. The Busker is everything you’ve ever heard about Irish whiskey – smooth and simple. It is delicious and anyone can afford it. I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it.” – Whiskey Fellow
"Royal Oak Distillery's flagship has a nose of ripe mango, dried apple rings, vanilla, and fine spice, with a curious additional note somewhere between pencil erasers and a tire repair kit. Its light-bodied frame showcases apple pie, sweet cream, caramel, gingerbread, custard, and vanilla. Although no prizes for guessing this is a blend of malt, grain, and single pot still whiskeys, it is refreshing and easy to drink." - Whisky Advocate
