West Cork Irish Whiskey 12 Year Old Port Cask Finish. Aged for 12 years in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks and then finished for 6 month in Douro Superior Port casks this whiskey brings a nice combination of sweet characteristics that blend together quite well  Irish whisky is not often Port finished, so this is something of rarity. This finish has given the whisky a faint rosy hue and an extra layer of sweetness. On the nose this whisky is fruity and fudgy, with some slight herbal notes, toasted barley and vanilla soaked oak. The palate brings notes of tea cake with some butter and honey, a little espresso and dark chocolate, before a faint wave of red fruit flavors. The finish is creamy, with red berries, wood spice and toffee lasting. A delicious Irish single malt, bottled at the slightly higher 43% ABV. $49.99


West Cork Irish Whiskey 12 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish. A limited release of 12 Year old single malt irish whiskey aged in first fill Bourbon casks for 12 years and finished for circa 110 days in rum, sherry (Pedro Ximinex) or port (Douro Superior) casks. WCD polish matures in selected casks for a shorter period than other distilleries to avoid overpowering the bourbon cask maturation. 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. Mash Bill: 100% Malted Barley; ABV: 43%. $49.99


Glendalough Double Barrel Irish Whiskey. Glendalough is a single grain Irish whisky, initially matured in American Bourbon barrels before enjoying a finishing period of six months in Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks. This comes bottled at 42%ABV, brought down to this strength by Wicklow mountain water. The overall effect is bold and mouthwatering, and yields flavors of almond, vanilla and pecan accented by clove and black pepper. Succulent caramel, salty melted butter and crème anglaise provide a thick, decadent sweetness with a fruity underlay from blackberries and marmalade. A polished oak finish with a hint of wood spice linger makes this whisky a rather tasty release from the Glendalough collection. $29.99
