West Cork Calvados Cask Finished Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a testament to the innovative spirit of West Cork Distillers. Located in Cork, this distillery has been pushing the boundaries of traditional whiskey-making by experimenting with different cask finishes, and the Calvados Cask Finished is a shining example of their craftsmanship.

The whiskey starts its journey in Ex-Bourbon First Fill casks, where it absorbs the classic notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak. But the magic happens when it's transferred to ex-Calvados casks from the Garnier Distillery. Calvados, a distilled spirit from Normandy made from apple cider, imparts a unique fruity and aromatic profile to the whiskey. The Garnier family, with their expertise dating back to 1877, produces some of the finest Calvados, making this collaboration even more special.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Golden amber with a slight shimmer.
  • Aroma: Freshly cut wood dominates, accompanied by green apples, pears, and a zesty lemon note. Undertones of marzipan, pistachios, and walnut bread add depth.
  • Flavour: A light palate with apples and pears taking the centre stage. Citric notes provide a refreshing twist, while spicy veins of pepper and aniseed add complexity. A hint of vanilla and herbaceous notes can also be detected.
  • Mouthfeel: Smooth with a slight warmth, the alcohol is present but doesn't overpower the delicate flavours.

The whiskey is versatile in its consumption. It can be enjoyed neat, allowing the drinker to fully appreciate its intricate flavours. For those who prefer a milder experience, having it on the rocks mellows down the alcohol, making the fruity notes more pronounced. It's also a great addition to cocktails, adding a unique twist with its Calvados finish.

West Cork Distillers has always been about innovation, and this whiskey is a reflection of their commitment to producing unique and high-quality spirits. Their recent redesign might remind enthusiasts of another well-known Scotch whisky, but the contents inside the bottle are distinctly Irish and distinctly West Cork.

For those looking to expand their whiskey collection or try something new, the West Cork Calvados Cask Finished Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a must-have. Its unique profile, combined with the expertise of West Cork Distillers, makes it a drink worth savouring. So, don't wait any longer. Purchase online or in-store now and embark on a delightful whiskey journey.
