  1. dandan798 scored this whisky 55 points Expert Senior

    It smells disgusting in my opinion but the taste is actually very nice for a new make. Definitely an interesting experience and worth a try. Don't let my low rating scare you. It compares this new make to actual whiskey which isn't fair but might give to an idea of what is awaiting you.

    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).
