In Brief: Glendalough 13 (46%, OB 2016)

This is a distillery bottling, but Glendalough’s whiskey hadn’t come of age yet, so it was sourced from another distillery. It was a very pleasant surprise – quite ‘naked’ and eau-de-vie-like but not immature, with floral, citrus and stone fruit aromas that were reminiscent of bourbon-matured Bladnoch and Balblair. Irish whiskey can sometimes be a confusing business with all the sourced spirits, but the quality of this one speaks for itself.

Score: 86/100
