The ‘Peat Charred Cask’ release is one of two expressions in the limited ‘Glengarriff series’ by west Cork distillers. Peated whiskey is not so prevalent in Ireland, this certainly doesn’t mean that Peated Irish whiskey is not good as west Cork distillers have proven with this unique expression. This whiskey is triple distilled single malt Irish whiskey which is initially matured in Sherry casks before being finished in casks that have been heavily charred using peat harvested from the local boglands of Glengarriff Forest in West Cork. It is bottled at 43% ABV.
Aroma: Slightly sweet, dried fruit.
Taste: Smoke, and slightly sweet.
