Double Trouble. 

Glendalough is Gaelic for "valley of two lakes" and if you ever get to visit the small town of Glendalough, you will find just that. A beautiful hamlet in eastern Ireland with two lovely lakes nearby. If you are ever fortunate enough to visit this idyllic spot, you will also find the first new craft distillery in Ireland since… well, a gosh darn long time.

Founded by "five friends from Wicklow and Dublin," they began their journey creating Poitín — a traditional Irish distillate made in very small pot stills (sort of like small batch Irish Moonshine). From there it was a short and easy step into a variety of Irish Whiskies and Herbal-infused Gins as well. Everything is made by hand with a good measure of love.

Double Barrel is a dream. Distilled from malted barley and Irish corn it gets its beauty rest in American oak first-fill Bourbon barrels before being finished for six months in Oloroso Sherry casks. Expect deep, impactful notes of robust chocolate and caramel with just a touch of fruit and vanilla.

Heaven.

Irish Whiskey became the most prominent Whiskey and most popular spirit in the 19th century because of the outbreak of phylloxera and the total devastation of Cognac production in France.

Ratings & Reviews
Ben
Ben,
This is honestly what I look for in my whiskies. Smooth, sweet and has a pleasant finish. For an Irish whiskey in this price range you get a tasty drink indeed. For fans of Jameson and Tullamore Dew. Good working class whiskey!!!
 
James
James,
For the price, not bad. But overall, just mediocre. Good for casual sipping. Sweet, not much complexity and a short lasting finish
 
Bill
Bill,
A bit too sharp for me.
 
Dalton
Dalton,
Very good sipping whiskey, warm, nice and smooth flavor, great price, will definitely keep on hand.
 
Steven
Steven,
So seriously...... where has this been? I've apparently been drinking the wrong irish whiskey for two decades........ I've drank tullemore dew, several different Jameson's, a few I can't even remember the name, writers tears(only recently.... also very good) and now this. My hubby and I just did a side by side of this with writers tears. For me, both are exceptional easy drinking Irish whiskeys. I'd be incredibly hard pressed to pick one!
 
Javier
Javier,
It's sweet upfront and slightly spicy on the backend. Taste doesn't linger but falls flat pretty quickly. It's alright for folks just starting on their whisky journey but I wouldn't revisit it anytime soon.

Craig,
This may be heretical to Irish whiskey connoisseurs, but I believe I enjoy this more than the Redbreast 12 Cask Strength! (. . . although probably not more than the regular Redbreast 12)

David
David,
Great neat. I'm no expert, but the flavor I got was oatmeal with milk and LOTS of brown sugar. Carmel and butterscotch as well. Really enjoying it.
 
Dean
Dean,
A very nice whiskey for the price. You can definitely get the hints of butterscotch and maraschino cherry. The after taste is a pleasant ginger spice. Well worth the money.
 
Mark
Mark,
Very smooth and light. Excellent flavor, very clean a bit fruity. I could have used just a little more flavor.
 
William
William,
Nose has a hint of earthiness that promises a smooth and balanced taste. Rather than caramel or honey, vanilla and dried fruit sweetness. Deeper into your dram, these flavors expand, to make it very hard to be patient between sips.
 
BOB
BOB,
Wonderfully smooth whiskey with cherry and other fruit flavors up front and a nice sweet finish. No burn at all on the back end, I'd imagine this would be a great entry whiskey for those looking to start out.

I most appreciated the smoothness...nice aroma no 'bite' aftertaste
 
John
John,
This and Teeling small batch are my go-to recommendations for value Irish whiskey purchases. Smooth, with a fruity after taste that is great neat with a dash of water as it is mixed with Ice and ginger ale (a blasphemy back home but a delight I enjoy in the US).
