A fantastic release from Glendalough, which will appeal to the whiskey purists out there.
A classic single pot still bottling, this whiskey is produced with a mash bill of malted and unmalted Irish barley in a 1:2 ratio. The spirit has been matured in former Bourbon casks for 3 years, before spending a final year in Irish oak casks.
The Irish oak has been sourced from the Wicklow mountains, and each bottle is labelled with the tree that produced the oak for the cask.
The final product is a magnificent example of Irish pot still whiskey, with notes of bright grassy grain, crunchy malt, toasted coconut, toffee, peaches, apples, pears, some blackberries and almond, cherry yoghurt, vanilla, caramel and bananas.
Bottled at 43%, this is a really impressive whiskey from the young distillery.
