    A promising nose, for sure. Fruity with that grassy thing. Really a promising nose. Reminds me of an old Irish malt.

    Mouth: In the beginning it continues on the nose, as I had hoped. Good, class ... Then he goes over to the finish and things go wrong. Bitter. Will be the porter finish. No, sorry. But still worth a try. A missed opportunity. Curious about another Glendalough, though.

    A lovely nose, but it falls short on the palate and the finish...
    • Nose
      83 83
      soapy/grassy, confectionery, varnish - it reminds me a bit of Loch Lomonds Inchmurin 12 yo - floral, dried and candied fruit and (pear)syrup
    • Taste
      77 77
      sharp arrival, woody-oaky with hints of nuts and a dry mouthfeel. A bit one - dimensional. a drop of water and it becomes a bit more lively but no real further development
    • Finish
      72 72
      dry, oaky, a hint of salt, thin, with a touch of dried fruits (raisins, figs)

    Beer barrel finishing is obviously a medium idea for (Irish) whiskey ....
    • Nose
      79 79
      chemical, spicy, maggi
    • Taste
      77 77
      Caramel, toffee, marmite, spice, chemical missing notes, very weird
    • Finish
      77 77
      Good length and consistent but similar to taste, which means not as good

    Phenol, sweet spices, lemon, chocolate.
