The Grandfather of Spirits.

Glendalough is a small craft distillery that harnesses its tradition, heritage and the origin of Whiskey. To really harness the roots of Whiskey, you have to go back to Poitín (pronounced potcheen). The first spirit that was ever distilled, according to certain records, is traditionally distilled in a small pot still made from malted barley, treacle, potatoes, sugar beet or wheat. Invented by Irish monks in the 6th century this prime water of life became a thing of a legend, especially because it was outlawed in 1661 by King Charles II.

So it spent the past four centuries in remoteness, a thing of bootleggers and moonshiners, distilled and consumed away from the public eye. Times have changed, however, and Poitin is not a thing of the clandestine anymore, it has risen out from the cellars and cupboards of Irish households.

Glendalough Poitin is made from sugar beet and malted barley. The mash must ferment for 72 hours to achieve a high alcohol content. It is matured in virgin Irish oak casks. Using the old recipes passed down through generations for over fourteen centuries, this true Irish spirit is a real living fossil in the spirits World! This Mountain Strength Edition is just a bit stronger than the signature Poitín, bottled an eye-watering 120 Proof.

Jim,
Not quite what i thought it was. First impression may have been off, I will try again.

Kevin,
If your a fan of moonshine (which i am) I highly recommend it. It tastes like a cross between moonshine and vodka in the best way possible. Or another way of putting it is simply a more refined, clean and sophisticated tasting moonshine. It’s smooth, actually easy drinking to me but mind you I’m a fan of shine and other well crafted higher proof tipples that have to be savored slowly so that might not be true for everyones pallet. It’s also really neat being able to experience the history of spirit in a sip. I loved it and will definitely buy again.

Steve,
I'm conflicted about this one. Never had anything quire like it. When I popped open the bottle and smelled it, I first thought of tequila. The taste, though, is completely different. It has some serious heat (from the mountain strength, I'm sure) but also a sweet marshmallow beetroot palate. The ensuing burps taste of the tequila nose. Very strange. I still don't know if I like it yet, but I'm glad to have experienced it.

Joshua,
Wow! A unique experience. The most delicious potato tasting booze I have ever had. Definitely something good on its own, but the strong flavor makes it not good for mixing.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
I am not typically a fan of clear spirits. This, however, was amazing. I loved the sweet finish. The only issue I had with this is that it wasn't as listed. The bottle is listed as a 700ml bottle and 60%. The bottle delivered was a 750ml bottle and 55%.
