West Cork 12 year old port cask finish
The company has been on the go since 2003 and in 2013 they moved their distillery into larger premises based in Skibbereen, West Cork. This whiskey has had a short finish in a port cask before being bottled at 43% ABV.
John Moriarty Notes
Stuart Irvine Notes
Overall I have been pleasantly surprised by this whiskey. Like I said I had heard a lot of different things about West Cork Distillers but it’s only when you actually try a product should you form your own opinion.
