Glendalough 13yr old Single Malt Mizunara Japanese Oak Finish Whiskey 46% 70cl

Regular price £75.00

This is the first, and only Irish Whiskey with a mizunara finish. We've sourced mizunara oak trees from Hokkaido in northern Japan. We then have this rare, virgin mizunara coopered by hand in Japan's only independent cooperage. These open-grained, lightly-charred barrels amplify flavour while layering on much more vanilla and smoothness. It also adds sandlewood and even a little coconut.
This is a unique, rare liquid that whiskey drinkers love. It represents a dramatic shift in what is being done with Irish Whiskey.
Best enjoyed neat, with a drop of water or a cube of ice.
Scoring a whopping 96 points in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible - Rare and precious, it is now classified as "liquid gold", a "superstar whiskey that gives us all a reason to live".
