Day Five: Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar Countdown
DEC 5 – Glendalough 13 Year Old Mizunara Oak Finish 46% Cost = $105-115 Score: A-
Nose: aromatic, rich fruits, barley sugars, caramel, apple orchard, cinnamon, pear
Taste: a bit surprising compared to the nose, slight wood note with spice, dark chocolate, coffee, dark sugars with peaches, caramel
Finish: good medium length
Overall: not what I expected, a different Irish whiskey that touches on many senses; pleasant overall with the price reflecting the casks used to finish. Glad I have an unopened bottle – I’d definitely give a try if you get the chance. Debated on B+ or A-, but leaned to the higher range. An excellent dram overall.
