Glendalough Pot Still Irish Whiskey
A wonderful pot still whiskey from Glendalough over in the Wicklow Mountains just outside of Dublin. It’s made from a 1:2 mashbill of malted and unmalted Irish barley, and obviously distilled in a pot still – the whiskey wasn’t distilled by Glendalough, though it was distilled to their specification by an unnamed distillery. It’s matured in bourbon casks and then finished for a year in Irish virgin oak casks, made from sustainably felled 140 year old trees from the forests surrounding the distillery. Bottled up at 43% ABV, the oak finish gives a lot of green notes to this otherwise rather creamy whiskey.
Region: Single Grain Irish Whiskey
Nose: Raw malt aromas, with tannic oak, creamy vanilla notes and some oak char, with a wave of cinnamon spice.
Palate: Crystallised ginger and candied citrus, banana custard and maple syrup, leading into green oak and dried herbs.
Finish: Aromatic clove and more creamy vanilla, alongside some red berries and toasted oak.
