A double gold award winner at San Francisco World Spirits Competition this year, Glendalough Double Barrel is a new and innovative Irish Whiskey. It’s a Single Grain Whiskey, aged first in American Bourbon barrels and then finished in Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks.
Irelands first craft distillery gives you a whole new style of Irish whiskey. A single grain whiskey, aged first in American Bourbon barrels and finished in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks.
This Irish single grain whiskey is a new and unique style of light and floral whiskey. Distilled in a Coffey still (like whiskey, another great Irish invention!) from a mash bill of Irish malted barley and corn, it spends three and a half years in American oak first-fill Bourbon barrels before being finished for six months in Spanish Oloroso sherry casks.
The Bourbon barrels impart deep, robust chocolate and caramel notes, while the Oloroso casks lighten the palate with fruitier notes and touches of nutty tones. With both barrels being oak, you get that beautiful vanilla thread you would expect to run through an Irish whiskey. Both barrels are porous too, allowing Ireland’s temperate, maritime air through to make its impression.
