Glendalough 13yo Mizunara Finish 700ml
The first and only Irish whiskey to have been finished in Japanese mizunara oak casks. First aged in bourbon barrels, this single malt was then transferred to virgin mizunara barrels created by hand at Japan's only independent cooperage. These lightly charred barrels have added vanilla, sandalwood and a touch of coconut to the whisky, while also increasing smoothness and depth of flavour.
At a whopper 96 points... it is "the spiciest Irish nose this year... probably the most sensuous chocolate finish in the history of Irish whiskey, different and adorable".
