Top reviews for West Cork Glengarriff Peat Charred Cask Finish:

— It was very smooth, the Oily left a nice spicy note that lingered on your tongue. Wishing I had a bottle of it.

— Loved. I like Irish Whiskey and to have a peated Irish is a treat. Smoky, charred forward with a heat finish. Picked up an orange hint. Also, Keto friendly. I drink neat.

— Smoked pepper, lots of oak. Peat is there too. Lots going on, layers of flavor. Really fun to dissect, demands your attention too much to just sip on it mindlessly.

Liam
Liam,
Starts sweet with cream and vanilla and goes to smoke, peat, and spice. More delicate than you might expect. Chloraseptic-like numbing of the throat with this one...
 
Roy
Roy,
Quite interesting and different to other peaty ones. A tad unbalanced with the spice and something off in the aftertaste, perhaps oily? I’m not sure I could have more than a couple though.
 
Jasson
Jasson,
A surprising blast of pepper and citrus from this one. Was not expecting the taste after the nose... Not unpleasant, but definitely not going to be everyone's favorite. Finish is long and peppery. All in all, a nice dram.
 
Jon
Jon,
It’s aroma promised a sweetness with a subtle smokiness attached, instead it delivered too much pepper with a citrus tickle at the back. Drinkable but pretty much all pepper if you like that sort of thing

Lawrence,
Peppery and a little oily to sit on your tongue. A bit of orange
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Interesting combination of the more fruity grain Irish whiskey characteristics and the smoke. The peat flavor is almost more lush tasting, hard to describe.

Jaakko,
Let's see, very light colour, lighter than mead. Also light in feeling, doesn't stick to the glass like some other more robust whiskeys. Smell also very light, but I like what I get. Fresh, crisp. Alsi hints of peat are there, but they come and go. What a surprise the first sip is. Fullbodied, woody, smoky mouthful. Interesting and complex aftertaste as some other person remarked also. Grass? Some sort of liqueur, just not sweet? Tingles a bit like black pepper. There is some smoke included too, but of the round and soft kind, instead of the sharp artifical version you can buy in a bottle nowadays. Changes throughout sipping, but the later parts are pretty nondescriptive. Still, easily better and more interesting than the average budget whiskey, I think.

Teagan,
This was my first peated Irish whiskey (1/3 of Peat of the Moment), and I think I'm going to need another before I make a verdict on the genre. I wouldn't order a pour of this again, as there's very little flavor compared to the peated Scotches I'm accustomed to. It's quite oily as others have mentioned (more than I'd like), but beyond that it felt a bit like sweet, smokey water with more complexity on the nose than the palette; what lingers on the tongue post-swallow is more interesting than the sip itself.

Lloyd,
All I could taste was the oil.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
Very smooth throughout, a little too much due to the oily after taste/feel. Nonetheless a good sipping whisky that cinnamon finish holds you over to the next sip.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is a very good, bold, Peated Irish Whiskey with an aromatic birth; while a bold & oily life leads to a long & spicy death with notes of peppery oak, dried apricot & a hint of smoke.

Delicious and well balanced.

Justin,
Not bad, but I prefer the Connemara if I'm looking for peat in an Irish whiskey.
Antti
Antti,
I'd have to agree, go with the Connemara!
