While every whiskey has a story, this one tells of an epic adventure. Glendalough is Ireland’s first craft distillery and the first to use Japanese Mizunara oak, with its seven-year-old Irish single malt aged in these extremely rare casks sourced from the island of Hokkaido. The most sought-after oak in the whiskey world, Mizunara is said to be the most flavourful, originating from ancient woods in the volcanic north of Japan. Expect a vibrant, fruity, and floral nose, leading to a luxuriously smooth mouthfeel with notes of dark-chocolate orange, sandalwood, and cinnamon.

Price per bottle: R1 599.
