Glendalough Double Barrel Single Grain
Glendalough // Ireland
Glendalough is an independent distillery founded by five friends that has lead the craft revival in Ireland. Having made a splash with their poitín styles, this double-barrel whiskey is a step in a new direction. It's made from a mash bill of malted barley and corn distilled in Coffey stills. It matured for 3 years in ex-bourbon barrels and finished its maturation in 500-liter oloroso sherry casks. Please note, updated packaging for this product in 2018.
Single GrainDistilled from a grain or mixture of grains, usually corn, wheat, or barley from one distillery, if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in barrels.
Cask Typeex-bourbon, ex-oloroso sherry
"Sweet-tart dried figs, dates, and apricot excite the palate, rounded off with rich cashew and almond. Some vanilla and toffee add to the mix. There's a bite of alcohol in the nose that echoes into the finish, which is a bit hot. It's a good candidate for an on-the-rocks whiskey or base for a spritz. "
