Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whiskey showcases a vibrant deep amber hue with flashes of golden light, an immediate testament to the unique, proprietary blend of malt and grain whiskeys as well as the intricate cask maturation process.
The olfactory experience commences with an aromatic complexity. Bold notes of toasted oak intermingle with the sweetness of caramelized sugars and orchard fruits, reminiscent of apple and pear. Undertones of vanilla and honey provide a warm, comforting backdrop to the nose.
A tapestry of flavors unfolds on the palate. The immediate warmth of toasted spices and cloves takes center stage, followed by the richness of dark fruits like plums and blackberries. The heavily charred cask influence comes through elegantly, providing nuances of dark chocolate and mocha, seamlessly layered over a base of creamy caramel and butterscotch.
West Cork Black Reserve leaves you with a long-lasting, lingering finish. Spicy undertones of pepper and nutmeg gradually fade into a softer, mellower combination of vanilla and charred oak. The ending is a well-orchestrated harmony of warmth and depth, inviting the taster to another sip.
