West Cork 12 Year Old Sherry Cask, is a product of the West Cork Distillery in Skibbereen. It is one of a trio of 12 year old whiskeys to be released by West Cork Distillers in 2016. This particular expression has been finished off in Sherry casks, which in itself released flavours of sweet berries and chocolate.
The nose of the West Cork 12 Year Old Sherry Cask, is that of vanilla pod, rhubarb tart and orange peel aromas that all settle together. The palate is that of a typical sherry finished whiskeys with flavours of raisins and dates with hints of nutty notes on the back of your mouth. The finish is somewhat strange with thick blackcurrant flavour. Lovely way to finish a whiskey.
Bottle in near perfect condition.
