Glendalough 13 Year Mizunara Finish
Glendalough // Ireland
From Glendalough comes this Irish single malt aged for 13 years in ex-bourbon barrels. The whiskey then finishes its maturation in Japanese Mizunara oak barrels. Released in February 2018, this is bottled at 46% ABV.

"The Mizunara wood makes for a more exotic Irish whiskey bouquet. Beeswax, raw honey, sandalwood, vanilla shake, and traces of tropical citrus fruit. Initially the palate is all texture, luxuriously oily. Then flavors of vanilla chews, dry malt, and peppery smoke. The finish hangs on to give you some fresh grapefruit. This shows the beginnings of a great old malt."
