WEST CORK Peat Charred Cask The Chronicles 54%
Blended Whisky, Ireland / Skiberdeen, 70cl, Ref: 55173
Created in 2003, West Cork was originally located in Union Hall, a fishing village in County Cork. In 2013, it was moved to the small nearby town of Skibbereen. The grains used are exclusively from Ireland and triple distillation is carried out in stills designed by the distillery's own team. Matured in a cask that had previously contained a peated single malt, this version is Irish at heart. It invites us to follow the meanders of a peat that occasionally comes to the surface of the palette of aromas and flavours, further highlighting all of the fruity, vanilla and mentholated notes that constitute its DNA.
Profile: the original initial nose reveals delicate peat and smoke, alongside candied lemons and cut grass. Allowed to breathe, it becomes honeyed and floral. The well-balanced attack is juicy (pear, apple). A twig-strewn peat precedes a mid-palate that is also floral (peony). The clear finish is fruity, faithfully reflecting Irish tradition. Single Cask no. 03814 – Exclusive to LMDW.

- Appearance : vibrant gold.
- Nose : fine, original. With lots of presence and elegance, peat and smoke snake through an olfactory landscape composed of candied lemon, freshly cut grass, courgette flowers and strong spices (black pepper, clove). Allowed to breathe, acacia honey and white florals make the aromatic palette extremely smooth. Next, notes of cucumber accentuate its vegetal and refreshing character.
- Palate : perfectly balanced. Sweet, almost syrupy at its core, the attack wavers between juicy fruits (pear, apple), vanilla, ginger and a peat strewn with dried twigs. The mid-palate reveals a wonderful herbaceous and floral (lilac, peony) freshness. At this exact moment, a delicious note of Calisson d'Aix highlights the richness of the flavours.
- Overall : long, clear. Just as generous as the nose and the palate, the finish reveals notes of red fruits, aromatic plants and white fruits (Williams pear), staying very much in keeping with Irish tradition. The retronasal olfaction gives top billing to ginger, clove, and, somewhat unusually, green beans and peas. The empty glass is mentholated and vanilla, almost chocolatey (transformation of the peat).
- The brand
The brandOuverte en 2004, West Cork incarne la renaissance des distilleries irlandaises. Ce whiskey 100% irlandais effectue une triple distillation dans les alambics pot stills en utlisant des céréales qui proviennent exclusivement de son pays. Outre la gamme classique de West Cork comprenant un blend, un brut de fût, un single malt de 10 ans et un whiskey vieillit dans des fûts ayant eu une chauffe très importante, West Cork a développé une autre gamme mettant en avant l'innovation sans pour autant dénigrer la tradition. Cette série intitulée Glengarriff sera dans une logique plus avant-gardiste en travaillant des vieillissements plus atypiques comme des fûts de bois de morta dit bog oak.
