Whisky Reviews for West Cork Peat Charred Cask

- 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.
- 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.
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
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)
medium to long, charcoal with Beck's & dark chocolate
- 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.
Artificial, fruity, lemon zest, a bit musty, herbaceous, the peat smoke is noticeable, but not as strong as expected.
Also here actually very mild, but very closed, a little bit of pepper, some menthol, some malt.
very peppery, artificial, some smoke in the background, menthol.
