A light and subtle masterpiece from the Emerald Island.
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 scientists. So, these guys know a thing about hard work and profound knowledge. Their love for Irish heritage, tradition – and, of course, booze, was is the cornerstone for their venture. And the fact, that the microclimate of West Cork is perfect for maturing Irish Whiskey, is obviously a cool advantage.
Let’s begin with the stats for the lovely West Cork Single Malt Irish Whiskey Virgin Oak Cask Finish, shall we? Patient aging in first-fill Bourbon casks, finishing in Kelvin Cooperage virgin oak casks. Non-chill-fitlered and there’s no artificial color added, no, sir. Bottled at 86 proof, the exceptionally light palate gives off subtle fruit, vanilla, fresh grass, and black pepper. A true Irish beauty.
