James Fox single cask collaboration with West Cork Distillers

 

James J. Fox, Ireland’s most prestigious cigar and whiskey merchant, is excited to announce a special single cask collaboration with West Cork Distillers: the West Cork 8 Year Old Single Malt.

Cask RC-436 showcases the meticulous aging process that defines this exceptional whiskey. For the first seven years, the spirit matured in ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks, which impart rich, complex flavours to the whiskey. The ex-Bourbon casks provide smooth vanilla undertones, while the Sherry cask adds sweet and nutty notes. To complete its journey, the whiskey had been finished in a rye cask for one more year, adding a distinct spice and depth that sets this single malt apart.

Bottled at 54.7% ABV, with a yield of only 160 bottles, this exclusive single cask release is available for €75 from June 29th, 2024, at James J. Fox, 119 Grafton Street, and online at www.jamesfox.ie
