A youthful, quality Irish spirit with legs.

Glendalough was founded by “five friends from Wicklow and Dubli'.” 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.

OK… stay with us because Glendalough Triple Barrel Irish Whiskey is a unique thing indeed. First, it is a Single Grain Irish Whiskey. That means that it is a combination of grains — in this case corn and malted barley — distilled and aged on site. They call it “triple barrel” because the spirit is aged three and a half years in ex-Bourbon casks, then six months in Oloroso Sherry casks, and finally it is finished in Madeira casks — for a total of four years of quality aging. Now, as a young Whiskey, we say be patient. Pour your dram, give it a single cube of ice or a spoonful of water, and then let it breath.

You will like the results.

Smartass corner:
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 east-Ireland hamlet with a small craft distillery and two lovely lakes nearby.

There are many Irish Whiskey varieties: grain Whiskey, malted barley pot-still-distilled, and ‘pure pot-still’ or ‘single pot still’ as it is now officially known. Then there is Poitin, one of the first spirits ever made.

Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, intense, handcrafted, Single Grain Irish Whiskey that has an aromatic birth; while a rich life leads to a wine like death of medium length.

John,
Really enjoyable raisin and caramel on the front end. Tasty hints of pear and oak on the back end. Smooth texture across the flavor spiral.
