Glendalough Double Barrel Single Grain Irish Whiskey (700ml)

IRELAND
$79. 99 Bottle
$959.88 Dozen
ABV: 42%

Aged in x Bourbon casks followed by a spell in Spanish Oloroso casks, Glendalough's NAS 'Double Barrel' offers clean, bright and fruity aromas reminiscent of vanilla, caramel fudge, dried mango and fresh fruit slice. The palate is fuller and richer than you'd expect (think young Port Dundas) with good body and well-defined grain flavours including vanilla wafer biscuit, caramelised fruits, milk chocolate, cloves and sprinklings of pepper. Priced right for a quality, easy-drinking Irish grain. 42% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

Other reviews...  The single grain category gains another brother. This was matured in first-fill bourbon barrels, finished in Spanish oloroso sherry wood before being reduced with Wicklow mountain water. The nose oozes caramel, browned apple, grated nutmeg, black peppercorn, toasted coriander, and clove. A flash of mint is overtaken by a swath of caramel, apple, and pear drops orbiting the muscular spice kick of clove, pepper, and ground chili concentrated on the tongue. Kapow! One to pour blind to Talisker lovers. 86 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Jonny McCormick 2015

...Brilliant light gold color. Lively, attractive, roasted woody aromas of honey roasted nuts, caramel corn, and fig cookie with a silky, crisp, fruity light-to-medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length praline, mocha, and banana nut toast finish. A nice nutty Irish whiskey that will be great in creamy cocktails or with desserts.
