Glendalough Irish Whiskey 17 Year Mizunara Oak
After 15 years in a first-fill bourbon cask, this was already an exceptional single malt. It had vibrant citrus notes over the long, sweet honey and vanilla you’d expect. It was the rare, Japanese Mizunara, however that brought the unexpected.
The Mizunara oak, sourced from an island 6,000
miles away, has really rounded this whiskey, bringing the viscosity to a luxurious, creamy mouth-feel. Sweet but spicy, very smooth but very complex. Its flavour profile stems from the unique oak lactone ratio and the vanillin levels in Mizunara.
Even before this whiskey touches your lips, the nose promises an exotic adventure in flavour. Oriental incense, woody spices and coconut aromas, mix wonderfully with the lighter fruitier notes of this Irish single malt.
A truly outstanding whiskey.
