Glendalough Double Barrel Bottling Note

Glendalough Double Barrel Irish Whiskey is a single grain Irish whiskey, initially matured in American bourbon barrels before enjoying a finishing period of six months in Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks. This comes bottled at 42% ABV, brought down to this strength by Wicklow mountain water. A rather tasty release presented by Glendalough, rich in vanilla, caramel, Christmas spices and dried fruit notes.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A creamy, malty nose begins with rich vanilla, white chocolate and buttery fudge. Notes of cooking apples, white grapes, marzipan icing and toasted oak form in the backdrop.

Palate: Succulent caramel, salty melted butter and crème anglaise provide a thick, decadent sweetness with a fruity underlay from blackberries and marmalade.

Finish: Polished oak and a hint of wood spice linger.

Glendalough Double Barrel Irish Whiskey Reviews

Not bad but I wouldn't buy it again

This is a strange one, feels like it's just a slight tweak or two away from being excellent. Sipping it, there's initially some pleasant sweetness and flavour going on but then halfway through and into the finish I found it a little too alcoholy with very little discernible taste other than this abrupt alcohol kick. There's no shortage of cheaper Irish whiskeys that have this easily beat such as IrishAmerican, Blackbush or Roe & Co so I wouldn't go for it again.

This, to me, is more like a good speyside scotch than your run of the mill Irish whiskies and ai found it a delightful departure from the norm.

This whiskey was a delightful surprise and is now my price to quality favorite of all the Scotch and Irish whiskies ever tried. At a relatively modest 40 euro, this delivered well above expectations. It is smooth, deep in flavor with a somewhat sweet and very pleasant long- lasting finish. Notes of caramel, vanilla, bourbon, cherry, oak and a bit of salt to round it out. It is dangerously drinkable and I am going to get another bottle as soon as back in stock. Best bang for the buck in quality whiskey I have had after 25 years of appreciating fine whiskies.

Smooth. Reminds me of my days in Wicklow.

Beginning bourbon flavors not felt so much on the nose cream and vanilla start end is quite long but a sugary final is too long

A real treat. An unusual whiskey, in my opinion.

I bought this whiskey after visiting the monastery where it is made outside of Dublin. It is wonderful with a taste of violet. A charming whiskey, but not one that you'd like to have a second glass. Full of flavor.

Not yet ready

It seems unfinished..almost like it needs a few more years in the cask.
The sweetness doesn't make up for the sharp, almost bitter rawness. This is one I'll drink on ice, and then I'll wait a few years and try another bottle.

Really great buy!

A very smooth whiskey indeed.

As a single grain whiskey this pretty nice. Smooth, quite tasty but admittedly very sweet. If sweetness is not what you're looking for in a whiskey then I recommend skipping this one. However if sweetness is not a problem, you should definately try this.

Kind of a let down

Lately I have been on a quest to try every Irish whiskey I can so when we got this at our store for $30 I had to grab a bottle. Upon opening I immediately noticed it was extremely fumey and alcoholic smelling with no discernable nose so I let it sit in the glass for about 15 minutes to breathe and it was still very fumey. Upon tasting I was surprised by how harsh this was really sharp and prickly on the palate. There are some nice vanilla custard notes in there but the spirit itself is so rough all you taste is alcohol.This is almost reminiscent of a few american ryes I've had but as an Irish whiskey I would expect something smoother and tastier. I have to say I am not a fan of this one, kind of a let down. The Sugarbear

Nope, won't be getting this again

Not for me this one, flavours are decent but it's very sharp.
Was looking forward to it after the reviews but was left disappointed if I'm being honest.
