Gelston's 5 Year Old Bottling Note

Another addition to the Gelston's range of wonderful Irish whiskey, this 5 Year Old single malt was aged in first-fill bourbon casks and then treated to a finish in sherry casks for around 160 days (or just over five months, if that's how you like to group your measurements of time). Bottled up at 41.2% ABV, creamier notes from the whiskey are bolstered by a good hit of spice from the cask finish. A fab cocktail contender, this.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A good dose of festive spices, with melted white chocolate drizzled over forest fruits.

Palate: Toasted fruitcake and zesty notes of orange peel, with clear sherry influence in the form of dark chocolate and berries.

Finish: Creaminess returns on a lengthy finish, with more dried fruit and cinnamon.

Reviews for Gelston's 5 Year Old
Young but good.
I'm rather new to Irish whiskey. I'm a scotch drinker first and foremost with a taste for the higher end American gear too. I've never really considered Irish on the back of only experiencing jamesons and Bushmills. However what with teeling being very agreeable I thought I'd branch out. I had the 12 of this in rum cask finish. Absolutely delightful but at £75 is hard to justify. Decided to take a punt on this as it's a fair price and slightly over the 40%abv. It's very nice it still carries the core flavour well even for its young age. The sherry cask finish is a nice touch., no px but it's bolsters the finish. Big fan, shame the 12 are so pricey.
