Glendalough 7 Year Old Irish Whiskey Reviews

You are getting your money's worth

Excellent whisky .. yes a bit youthful, but not "immature".. you're getting a beautiful intensity on the nose which develops into more sweetness the more you nose it and then you are able to detect the 13 year old older sibling in it, you can kinda smell where its going and how its still the younger but somewhat more exciting sibling of the 13 while the 13 is more mature, deeper, and prettier.

On the palette, a bit malty fudge mid palate, intense, alive, sweet, very sipping.
The finish is actually bigger than the 13 merely on account of its young this finish for all intents and purposes represents what the 13's finish used to be but then softened.. so I think the 7's finish is bigger and more interesting. Though with the13s finish, it is lacking on the finish ..but rewarding a few moment later on the lovely lingering aftertaste.

Basically, you cant go wrong with Glendalough. It's easily better than the overrated and hyped redbreast (any age) and perhaps the best Irish whisky there is.. and the fact that it is a single malt certainly cant go unappreciated.

Buy it.

My second favorite spirit besides Glendalough 14 Year Old Irish Whiskey

I first bought this whiskey during a tasting in MA. I wasn't a whiskey person AT ALL. I had just started getting into and purchased maybe 3 bottles over the last few months: Bullit, Buffalo Trace, and Makers Mark. I'd probably had some Jhonny Walkers red.

In Acton Wine & Spirits nears Boston Massachusetts, an Irish man was providing samples of whiskey to taste. My wife encouraged me to try it out -- but I was pretty happy with Buffalo.

With enough nudging, I am so glad I tried it. Glendalough single malt Irish Whiskey blew me away. I liked everything about it: the flavor, the smell, and most importantly - for someone who doesn't say crap like "hmm, it has a hint of maple, lavender, and moxie, swish a little for a tingling sensation in the mouth, then smell the glass as you swallow so that you get the full spectrum of pear, grape, maple, and burnt cheddar - it was good! It wasn't watery garbage and it had character and flavor but wasn't harsh. It leaves a lingering, satisfying flavor that sticks around just long enough and is perfect neat.

Silly, but the friendly conversation with the Irish man giving out samples (co-owner immigrated from Ireland) was extremely pleasant and I felt no rush as I debated internally the extra $15 over Buffalo, which led me to buy this again and again and again. The next year, I took a trip to Ireland and didn't realize Glendalough was on the itinerary. It was! And I learned how to pronounce Glendalough. Oddly, I could not find Glendalough anywhere in Ireland, despite tweeting back and forth with the local co-owner and brother of the man from Acton It seems it was mostly served in pubs there. So, we had Bushmills Black during the trip, which, while good, made me miss my Glendalough even more.

The 7 year old is fantastic. The 13 year old is even better, but I reserve it for gifts and really special occasions. I'm disappointed that I bought a **Glenfiddich** 15 year single malt scotch for my "holiday" drink. I had my first of it last night and kept looking back at my 7 year Glendalough

I'm traditionally a scotch drinker but wanted to branch out and try some Irish whiskies as I have found a taste for Bushmills 12, 16 & 21. This is a fantastic warming dram with sweet notes and is a whiskey I would recommend for people who usually drink sweeter whisky. It has a certain degree of sophistication in that it has a sweetness from the sherry cask maturation and as such has a sweet taste which is very enjoyable.
