This 25-Year Single Malt Whiskey Is The First Ever Aged In An Irish Oak Cask

Whiskey dates back a whopping five centuries or more. And in that time it has become one of the most diverse alcoholic spirits, with regional styles popping up globally from Scotland to Japan and back again. While that’s great news for anyone who enjoys this type of liquor, it does mean that stylistic firsts are hard to come by. But they do still pop up from time to time, as is the case with Glendalough’s 25-Year Single Malt Irish Whiskey.

With only 1,800 bottles produced, this Irish single malt whiskey is actually the world’s first-ever to be aged in an Irish oak cask — which is reason enough to garner plenty of attention. However, prior to being finished in virgin Irish oak, it’s also aged in charred American bourbon and Oloroso Sherry casks. The result, according to Glendalough, is an exquisite spirit marked by sweetness, smoothness, depth, and unique character. If you can find a bottle, they’re available for $448 a bottle.
