GLENDALOUGH 13 YEAR OLD SINGLE MALT IRISH WHISKEY 700ML
Colour: light amber
On the nose: I’m immediately hit by bounty bars – milk chocolate, fresh coconut, vanilla, freshly cut peaches and squeezed orange juice. Honey notes with praline and bubblegum plus a very light dusting of baking spice with pencil shavings, sandalwood and light incense. Water brings out more cereal notes from the malt. A cracking nose.
In the mouth: A medium mouthfeel, quite creamy. Vanilla infused buttercream, toffee and oak spice from the bourbon cask. Peach and nectarine with a touch of allspice layered with coconut shavings and almonds. The finish moves from coconut to chocolate to mocha, oak and light clove notes. Water intensifies the bourbon notes of honey, vanilla and spice and more chocolate.
