An impressive first release of single malt Irish whiskey from the recently formed Glendalough Distillery. This has been bottled from malt originally double distilled at a different Irish distillery and is very good considering it is only seven years old. We will have to wait a few more years to taste whiskey from their own stills, but this is good value for money and has some tasty spice notes, along with some fresh citrus and barley flavours. This is not chill filtered and bottled at a decent 46%.
Vibrantly fruity with some sappy, fresh oak aromas. Good flavours of malted barley, lemons, pears and apples. A little hot and peppery on the finish.
