Note by Serge Valentin from whiskeyfun.com:
Glendalough ‘Mountain Strength Poitin’ (60%, OB, Irish, +/-2016) Please fasten your seatbelts… Colour: white. Nose: yeah! A raw, pearish, grassy, and rooty white distillate. I can’t find any potatoes, but I do seem to find… wait, beetroots? Celeriac? With water: plain new make, as you will find in most Scottish distilleries as well. Mouth (neat): it is, of course, new make. Raw, spirity, alcohol-sweet, with the same touches of pears and beetroots as in the nose. As they say in the old French movie Les Tontons Flingueurs (English: Crooks in Clover, also known as Monsieur Gangster), ‘I used to know a Polish girl that used to take this for breakfast’. Ha! With water: this is almost good. Earthy apples and pears plus a good deal of saccharin. Finish: medium, on the same sugary flavours. Comments: a bottle to have in your bar, to show to your friends that whiskey doesn’t run out of the still golden. SGP:520 - 75 points (yeah, more or less).
