    What to talk about: Fighter Connor McGregor got into the spirit game with a whiskey that celebrates his Dublin neighborhood, no. 12. McGregor teamed up with former Guinness master distiller, David Elder, to create a smooth blend of triple distilled Irish whiskey that they finish in ex-bourbon barrels. This is a great whiskey to party with — as it mixes well as a cocktail or highball base and you can shoot it very easily.

    Tasting notes: Softness is the first impression here. This is an easy sip with a light presence (light on the wallet too!). The woody bourbon barrels bring in notes of vanilla spice and charred oak wood staves. Then the whiskey takes a turn into a bright jasmine field in full bloom and ripe pear orchards. There’s an earthiness that helps this one shine and rise above the pack.

    LOL, wonder how much P12 paid for that review. The whiskey is awful and belongs nowhere near a top 10 list.

    How many Sherdoggers have supposedly tried P12 to claim that it sucks?

    Sounds like a lot of people here are full of shit and just wanna hate.

    Of course you don’t, you’re only 14. Good lad, now go kiss Conor’s pic and go to bed.

    I have. It wasn't THAT bad. It's fine if mixed with coke. But there are cheaper and better options. IAfriend actually brought it and Metallica's whiskey which was actually really good. Fun story, Metallica separated some barrels and played different songs next to them so the barrels would vibrate to those specific frequencies and then have whiskey tasters taste the difference if any.

    But most whiskey reviewers, proper ones (and not Conor haters) don't have a lot of positives to say about it.

    Fair enough, sounds like an unbiased educated opinion. Not too sure about the rest of this message board parroting that it sucks tho.

    They were giving samples at a package store, can verify it is garbage.
    Proper number 12, is the official name.
    Which is just a lame ploy to make people think it's been aged 12 years like a good whiskey. No, just a very misleading name.
    It's like sellling 4oz. Horse steaks under the name "16oz prime" because your old zip code had a 16 in it.
    They were giving out samples of bushmills red bush, same bottle price and it was sooo much smoother and just better.

    Proper whiskey just keeps growing and it sells like crazy even when Conor is inactive with fighting.

    Dont know why his fans are so happy about "HIS" Whiskey brand.

    Seems more and more likely that he never fights again.

    Are you fans of him, his success or his fighting?
