Glendalough Single Malt 13 Year Old 70cl

Glendalough Single Malt 13 Year Old 70cl

This excellent whiskey from the Glendalough distillery is matured in first-fill bourbon casks and appropriately cut to 46% using local Wicklow water. The original plan was to release this as a 12 year old, as is traditional. But it was matured an extra year in honour of rugby great Brian O’Driscoll, a shareholder in the company. O’Driscoll wore the No.13 jersey for Ireland during his playing days. We will have to wait a few more years to taste whiskey from Glendalough’s own Holstein’s stills, but this is very good with some spicy and peppery notes. Each bottle depicts St. Kevin, who founded a monastery beside the beautiful lakes at Glendalough.

Style
On the nose there is deep butterscotch, honeycomb and rick lemon meringue balanced with citrus fruits and just a hint of a clove spice. On the palette, intense vanilla fudge jumps to the front with luxurious sweetness and almost rock candy mixed with touches of fruit – lemon citrus, peach and dried apricot. This is followed by deep spices, red peppercorn and cloves. It has a truly velvety mouth feel that covers the palate. The finish leaves some spice lingering with under-layers of robust malt characteristics and deep oak notes. To finish vanilla fudge reoccurs with a finish that lasts an eternity.
