Peat Charred Cask 700ml ABV 43%
West Cork Glengarriff Series
The Glengarriff Series was launched in early 2018 by West Cork Distillers with two expressions – the Peat Charred Cask Finish 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. The peat charred casks that this expression was finished in has imparted an earthy smokiness rarely seen in Irish whiskey.
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.
