West Cork Black Reserve 750
|Region||Ireland, County Cork|
West Cork's limited release Black Reserve whiskey is prepared by blending malt and grain whiskey. The blend is then polish matured in lightly toasted heavily charred #4 bourbon first fill casks for 6 months. This produces a slightly smokey, vanilla rich, sweet whiskey. Dr Barry Walsh was instrumental in the development of this product and was delighted with the final quality. The whiskey expresses deep woodiness and spice with a lingering sweet vanilla note, as well as a Barrel Proof whiskey, brimming with dried fruits, almonds and malt. It is bottled at 86 proof after being finished in Double Charred Bourbon Casks.
