Glendalough 13 Year Old Mizunara Single Malt Whiskey
I’ve been meaning to try this Double Barrel release from Glendalough for some time now and finally got around to sitting down and cracking this bottle open. I was intrigued as this is a single grain and usually offers creativity in a relativity unexplored category in Irish Whiskey. Glendalough Double Barrel gets this name as it was aged in ex-bourbon barrels before soaking for a further six month in ex-sherry casks for an extra punch of flavour. After finishing it is then bottled at 42% abv and cut down to size with local, Wicklow Mountain water. This Irish Whiskey has no age statement (NAS) but our research has found it is quite young and between three and four years old. But don’t let it’s age put you off as it is packed full of flavour.[Read more…] about Glendalough Double Barrel Single Grain Irish Whiskey Review
