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

The best at a reasonable price

My favourite. Whiskey as it should be. A touch of caramel with a warm whiskey flavour. Smooth but with an bit of a burn.

Perfect for drinking with friends

Tried this in O'Reagan's bar in Shannon. After a pint of Guinness. Nose was quite harsh but went down smoothly - rich taste like a fruit cake but not necessarily sweet - and then a slight burn a few moments later.

However, I'm giving this 5 stars as its not pricey, it does go down well and it occurred to me that if I was catching up with old friends this would really get us on the way to babble and madness.

I'm a fan 😄

Smooth vanilla with an oak finish.

This is a tremendous Irish whiskey. Vanilla comes out you’re strong on the first sip and then finishes with a hint of oak. Really a fantastic pour. Wish it were more readily available in the US.

Great Value

bought on sale. Incredible value! bourbon barrel gives it the vanilla and baking spice you want, oloroso mellows it well. 2 rocks and zero burn. Could drink way to much of this fine Irish whiskey.

Heavy Sherry notes and a hint of heat.I am a big Redbreast 12 fan it not up to that standards but for the price you can’t beat it 🥃☘️😎

A good buy

Enjoyed from the first taste at a dealer and immediately bought a bottle. I’m a Jameson stout fan but enjoy Glendalough for a different taste. Agree with most of all the positive reviews , in terms of nose , palate and finish

Great buy will purchase again

Very smooth with great flavours- nice vanilla taste with a nice bit of sweetness from the sherry finish

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.
