$38.99

Size

Glendalough Pot Still Irish Whiskey offers a fresh perspective on a traditional Irish whiskey style. Crafted in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains, it uses a unique mash bill of malted and unmalted Irish barley. Distilled in a pot still and matured in a combination of ex-bourbon barrels and virgin Irish oak casks, this whiskey delivers a smooth and flavorful experience. Hints of spice, honey, and oak come together in a well-balanced dram, perfect for sipping neat, on the rocks, or in classic Irish whiskey cocktails.

Description

The use of virgin Irish oak casks alongside ex-bourbon barrels creates a unique flavor profile. Expect a smooth and approachable dram with a balance of spice, sweetness, and oaky character.

Aroma

Look for an initial wave of malty sweetness, with hints of honey and vanilla extract. The influence of the pot still distillation might reveal a touch of spice, like clove or cinnamon. Depending on the batch, a subtle herbal note or even a hint of green fruit (like apple or pear) might emerge.

Palate

The medium-bodied character offers a satisfying weight on the tongue. The 43% ABV provides a gentle warmth that complements the flavors. The initial taste is a pleasant interplay of spice and sweetness. Hints of clove or cinnamon mingle with honey and vanilla notes. The use of virgin Irish oak casks might contribute a subtle grassy or vegetal note, adding complexity.

Finish

The sweetness fades gradually, leaving a pleasant and warming finish. Hints of spice and oak linger on the palate, along with a subtle touch of grassiness from the virgin Irish oak. The overall finish is medium-length, allowing the flavors to linger without being overpowering.
