Conor Mcgregor's journey into the world of whiskey   

Mcgregor's journey into the world of whiskey began in 2018, when he created the Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey. He is said to have been the brains behind its creation, development, branding and promotion, having wanted to offer something that promoted Ireland and its traditions. 

He looked for a team who shared his passion for his homeland and its whiskey, finding it at the oldest whiskey distillery on the Isle of Ireland and with his master distiller. Together, they worked to create a blend of sweet Irish grain and single malt Irish whiskey, seeking smooth balance and hints of vanilla, honey-like sweetness and toasted wood.

On Twitter, he said: "There is no smoother 4 year old whiskey on the planet, let alone the market than Proper Twelve."

What the reviews say about Proper No. Twelve whiskey

Of course, no matter how famous the name on the label, if you really want to know about a whiskey, the critics are the people to turn to. Here's what they said...

“The aroma on this whiskey is like a piece of toasted white bread with some honey smeared on top. It’s sweet and subtle, with just a hint of vanilla creeping in around the sides.” - 31 Whiskey

"Here, there was some pretty decent green apple flavor immediately, with toasted sunflower seeds and wet sticks behind it. I still couldn’t find any vanilla notes that Irish whiskeys tend to feature.” - Whiskey Reviewer
