West Cork Cask Strength Blended Irish Whiskey is an extraordinary expression from West Cork Distillers, a distillery celebrated for its commitment to quality and innovation. Situated in Skibbereen, County Cork, West Cork Distillers was founded in 2003 by childhood friends John O’Connell, Ger McCarthy, and Denis McCarthy. From their modest beginnings, they have grown into one of the top Irish whiskey brands, with their products recognised globally for excellence.

Product Details:

This Blended whiskey is composed of a blend of 66% grain and 34% malt. The whiskey undergoes initial maturation in bourbon casks, which impart rich vanilla and toffee notes. It is then re-casked for an additional six months to ensure a perfect marriage of flavours. Bottled at an impressive 62% ABV, it is non-chill filtered and free from added colour, preserving its natural essence.

Producer History:

West Cork Distillers began in a small room at the back of Denis' house in Union Hall. Despite the economic challenges, their passion for crafting high-quality Irish whiskeys led them to success. In 2014, they moved to a new facility in Skibbereen, significantly expanding their operations. Today, the distillery operates on a 12.5-acre site on Marsh Road, with a distillation capacity of 4 million litres of pure alcohol. Their products are now sold in nearly 70 countries, showcasing their global reach and reputation for excellence.

Tasting Notes

  • Aroma: Enticing aromas of malt, dried fruit, and balanced sweetness.
  • Flavour:  The palate offers a spirited combination of malt, dried fruit, and orange peel, with a bold and satisfying finish.

Food Pairings

The West Cork Cask Strength Blended Irish Whiskey pairs wonderfully with a variety of foods. The bold flavours complement hearty dishes like grilled steaks, lamb chops, and rich stews. The dried fruit and orange peel notes enhance the taste of desserts such as fruit tarts, chocolate mousse, and spiced cakes. For a lighter option, try pairing it with a cheese platter featuring sharp cheddar, blue cheese, or gouda to balance the whiskey’s robust profile.

Serving and Cocktail Suggestions

This Blended whiskey is best enjoyed neat or with a splash of water to open up its complex flavours. It also makes an excellent base for robust whiskey cocktails. Try it in a high-proof Old Fashioned to highlight its bold characteristics, or in a Manhattan where its rich notes can blend seamlessly with sweet vermouth and bitters. For a refreshing twist, mix it with ginger ale and a squeeze of lime for a spirited highball.
