Brooks' Whiskey of the Month

July 2018

 

Glendalough 13 Year Old

Irish Single Malt Whiskey 

 

This excellent 13 Year Old Whiskey from the Glendalough Distillery is matured in first-fill bourbon casks. Appropriately cut to 46% using Wicklow water.

Each bottle depicts St Kevin, who founded a monastery beside the beautiful lakes at Glendalough.

 

Nose is deep butterscotch, honeycomb and rich lemon meringue balanced with citrus fruits and just a hint of a clove spice. 

Taste. Jumps to the front with an intense vanilla fudge 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 light cloves. A truly velvety mouth feel that just hovers on the palate. 

Finish. The spice is left lingering with under-layers of robust malt characteristics and deep oak notes. And again vanilla fudge reoccurs with a finish that lasts an eternity
