Glendalough Double Barrel Single Grain Whiskey 42% 750ml
The Glendalough Distillery was founded by a group of friends from Wicklow and Dublin with a passion for reviving the heritage of craft distilling in Ireland. Inspired by the story of St Kevin who left abandoned safety and comfort to follow his passion to create something more meaningful in the mountains, the friends convinced each other to leave the safety of their day jobs, head into the mountains and take a chance to create something beautiful.
The distillery was built near their favourite spot in Glendalough. Glendalough or the Glen of two lakes is one of the most beautiful, and visited valleys in Ireland.
Upon its release, this whiskey won double gold at The World Spirits Competition in San Francisco. It really is an Irish whiskey that will make you think twice about Irish whiskey. A lovely, light and drinkable whiskey, it's also complex with a depth of flavour beyond its years. Aged twice in barrels from far sides of the world, the flavours are a game of two halves. American oak Bourbon barrels bring sweet honey and smooth vanilla notes, laying down the foundations of the flavours. The Spanish oak Oloroso barrels layer on dried fruit, and nutty flavours. To find the best Oloroso casks, they go off the beaten track to the small Andalusian town of Montilla, home of the famous PX grape.
Nose: Rich with dark fruit, cherry, raisin, fig and Christmas pudding. Floral notes with lemongrass, citrus and a touch of nutmeg.
Taste: Sweet and smooth, with butterscotch, honey and peppercorn, dried fruit, maraschino cherries and brown sugar.
Finish: Ginger spices a touch of almond and earthiness.
