Whisky Reviews for West Cork Calvados Cask Finished

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.57 points

  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Young daring, but interesting whiskey, with an apple character. Exposure in Calvados gave color to this release.
    • Nose
      The first background is the shades of Newmake: fermented milk products, yeast, herbaceousness. Deeper - a creamy fudge, a boiled apple.
    • Taste
      Apple sourness, apple seeds, spices, herbs, young tannins.
    • Finish
      Short, with a prominent malt component, with notes of apple, pear, green tea and caramel.

  2. wizzkey scored this whisky 70 points Newbie

    nose: green apples and cinnamon
    planet watery and smooth
    finish short and a little bit bitter

    very light whiskey - perfect for beginers

    IMHO: WC Calvados CF < WC Port CF. But both are good!
    • Nose
      82 82
      woody, oak, cask, herbal, vanilla, toffee cream, marzipan, baked apple with cinnamon, cinnamon bread, light and smooth sweetness, spicy, maybe a bit earthy, hints of nuts and cork
    • Taste
      80 80
      cinnamon, pepper, vanilla, smooth and pleasant, earthy hints, fruity - apple
    • Finish

    Very good price / performance ratio.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Pears, apple, some citrus notes

      The unpleasant alcohol disappears after a few minutes.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Very mild, calvados, apple, in short: fresh and fruity
    • Finish
      82 82
      short, light and spicy with about honey

  5. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      83 83
      Light, fresh wood, some grain, light boiled down fruit notes, preserved pears, cinnamon, light Christmas spices, puff pastry with an apple and cinnamon filling.

      Takes a bit of time, but then great fruit and spice aromas come out.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Spices, fresh light wood, light light fruit notes.

      Unfortunately a little bit.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Pleasant, slightly spicy and dry, with a pleasant light fresh fruit note in the background.

  7. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Nice light Irish drinking whiskey for a very good price
    • Nose
      82 82
      Alcoholic apple like a calvados, a little vanilla
    • Taste
      83 83
      Light fruits, pear, honey, almond, vanilla
    • Finish
      78 78
      A little bitter but not unpleasant, quite short

  8. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    The nose is initially very apple-brewed, but the unpleasant notes disappear rather quickly. Pickled apples on the palate, astringency, rather dense, burnt picket fence at the finish
