Whisky Reviews for West Cork Peat Charred Cask

  1. Arquebus scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Soft, fruity, much reminiscent of Auchentoshan or a Tullibardine - The Murray which I have on the go for comparison . The fruit notes are difficult to pin down, but I could go with 'Gummy Bears' or children's sweets. There also a generic savoury red wine note , some earthiness and a distinct orange/ cinnamon theme. i didn't notice any peat.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Interesting experiment to actually bring the smokiness over the burnt out barrels, as so often is spread to laymen. I think it's delicious, I like it, the beer and the orange notes are a good team, for fair € 28 and Experimenters -> Buy recommendation.
    • Nose
      on the one hand fresh-green-sparkling, like a tart, cool pils, hoppy, carbonated, unripe green apple, freshly mown grass, a splash of lemon ... the whole green stuff will probably come from the peat ... and then there is A nice supple orange gummy-honey sweetness, with a touch of cinnamon - fine
    • Taste
      From the gummy bears is delicious Soft Cake Orange (chocolate in addition), the very fresh greens from the nose tart and herbaceous and the smokiness on the tongue is very reminiscent of the peated malt, most likely barbecue smoke (not medical / ham / tar)
    • Finish
      medium to long, charcoal with Beck's & dark chocolate

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Again, the smoke is more of a side effect in menthol, the rest is rather weak. Unfortunately, even the great fruity nose of the Bog Oak is missing here, whereby I see both at the same, rather low level.
    • Nose
      Artificial, fruity, lemon zest, a bit musty, herbaceous, the peat smoke is noticeable, but not as strong as expected.
    • Taste
      Also here actually very mild, but very closed, a little bit of pepper, some menthol, some malt.
    • Finish
      very peppery, artificial, some smoke in the background, menthol.
