West Cork Peat Cask Bottling Note

The Glengarriff Series was launched in early 2018 by West Cork Distillers with two expressions - the Peat Charred Cask Finish (which you're look at right now!) and the Bog Oak Charred Cask Finish. These single malt Irish whiskeys are initially matured in Sherry casks before being treated to a finishing period in casks that have been charred using fuel sources from the Glengarriff Forest in West Cork. The distillers even have their own bespoke device, built with the help of a local blacksmith, to do the charring.

The peat charred casks that this expression was finished in has imparted an earthy smokiness rarely seen in Irish whiskey - fascinating stuff!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Orange oil, dry earth and fried banana. A hint of warming cinnamon grows in the background.

Palate: Meaty malt, quince and a good helping of ripe pear.

Finish: Peppery oak and dried apricot. Distant smoke.

West Cork Glengarriff Series - Peat Charred Cask Finish Reviews

Something new...finally

My favourite expression from WCD.
Young, thick, oily, a bit of peat (more like wet tobacco, but I am no expert…), sweet barley sugar.
Well worth buying.
