The Irish whiskey magicians at Glendalough take a return journey to Japan (following on its earlier 13, 17, and 25 12 months previous releases) with the launch of Glendalough Mizunara Cask-Completed Whiskey, a youthful 7 12 months previous single malt that’s completed on this uncommon, Japanese oak. (Glendalough was the primary Irish whiskey producer to make use of any such wooden.)

It’s instantly an uncommon expertise, the nostril intense with roasted grains, burnt wooden, and a lumbering wine-like high quality. It’s extraordinarily savory and strange for Irish, which just about at all times pairs its recent cereal notes with a honeyed sweetness to melt issues up. I imply, that’s why individuals like consuming Irish whiskey. There’s just about none of that right here on the nostril, a smoldering stroll by a forest with a campfire detectable off within the distant.

The palate shifts gears so dramatically it’s an instantaneous shock. Right here that roaring wooden and cereal shifts into way more partaking and deeper, extra vibrant character, notes of espresso grounds, licorice sweet, and darkish chocolate all shortly coming into clear focus. There’s sweetness, however extra of a molasses character buried beneath the panoply of savory, brooding qualities that swirl collectively cohesively. The end goes on and on, a caffe corretto that includes a pinch of anise that takes issues in one more course. Can’t cease, gained’t cease.

You could not find it irresistible like I did, however I promise that is in contrast to any Irish whiskey you’ve ever had.

92 proof.
