This rare Glendalough 17 Year Single Malt Mizunara Finish, limited-edition Irish whiskey boasts a 17-year journey. Aged primarily in ex-bourbon casks, it received a final two-year polish in coveted Japanese Mizunara oak. This unique finishing step imparts unexpected notes of sandalwood, coconut, and a hint of smoke, elevating the whiskey's complexity.

Description

Glendalough 17 Year Single Malt Mizunara Finish is a masterpiece of cask finishing. The initial maturation in ex-bourbon casks lays the groundwork with vanilla, honey, and citrus notes. The two-year Mizunara cask magic then adds a fascinating layer of complexity.

Nose

Aromas of orange zest, jasmine, and raisin intertwine with the classic bourbon cask influence of vanilla and caramel. Additionally, unexpected notes of sandalwood and a touch of cedar emerge, hinting at the Mizunara influence.

Palate

The initial sweetness of vanilla and honey is complemented by a creamy mouthfeel. The Mizunara oak shines through with subtle hints of coconut, sandalwood, and a touch of earthy smoke. Hints of dark chocolate may also emerge.

Finish

The finish is long and warming, with a delicate balance between the sweetness of the bourbon cask and the intriguing savory notes from the Mizunara. A lingering hint of smoke adds a touch of complexity.
