Glendalough Single Cask Pot Still (Batch 1), 43%

Price: $55 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Hawthorn, apple, caramel, ground almond, shortbread, and finely ground pepper on an alluring nose. Gentle, creamy mouthfeel with caramel, dried apple, a moderate attack of clove and pepper, and a finish of mild spices and bakery treats. Irish oak-finished whiskeys are a rare occurrence, making this a good stepping-stone into the category, though it's mellow by pot still standards. (10,500 bottles for U.S.)
