A very well-balanced Whiskey blend from the Emerald Isle.
In the rugged and picturesque peninsulas of West Cork in southern Ireland, a terrific trio of best friends set up an artisanal distillery in 2003 and gave it a no-B.S. name: West Cork Distillers. Two of them used to be deep sea fishermen, and one used to work for a beverage firm as a scientist. So, these guys know a thing about hard work and profound knowledge. Their love for Irish heritage, tradition – and, of course, booze, was the cornerstone for their venture. The fact that the microclimate of West Cork is perfect for maturing Irish Whiskey, is obviously a cool advantage, too.
West Cork Black Cask Blended Irish Whiskey is their beautifully balanced Whiskey blend. Crafted from 66% grain and 34% malt Whiskeys, it was matured in first-fill Bourbon casks for 3 years before it received its final – and might we add clever – touch in heavily charred Bourbon casks for 1 year. The final flavors are a pleasant combination of malt notes, vanilla, and lingering sweetness that have garnered many-an award over the years. You can easily sip on this well-balanced blend neat, pour it over ice, or mix it into a high-end cocktail.
