Glendalough Single Malt 7 Year
Glendalough // Ireland
Glendalough Distillery was founded in 2011 by five friends interested in reviving the culture of craft distilling in Ireland. Their 7 Year Single Malt refers to St. Kevin (his image graces the label), who spent seven years in the local wilderness before building the "seven city of churches" in the Glendalough Valley. Using a malted barley mash, this whiskey is aged seven years in first-fill bourbon barrels. Non-chill-filtered, it's cut to 46% ABV with Wicklow spring water.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask TypeFirst-Fill Bourbon
"The nose offers cereal grain, green apple, pear, floral notes and light tropical fruits, as well as a touch of citrus and spice. Palate starts spicy, with dry oak and a soft, light Irish profile, but is a bit one note. Rich sweetness emerges leading into the finish, with chocolate malt, toffee and fudge, as well as stone fruits, before turning dry, spicy and astringent. "
