Day Six: Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar Countdown
DEC 6 – West Cork Glengarriff Series Peat Charred Cask 43% Cost = $35-45 Score: C+
Nose: different, sour wood, smoke, char, tart cider, some floral elements
Taste: some muted sherry fruit notes, watery wood char – a bit flat for me, a plastic-y citrus candy note
Finish: touch of wood bitterness on the medium finish
Overall: a so-so whiskey overall – and I really love peat and sherry, and those two together; just not working here for me – others like it more, just not for me. I would not add to my collection – try at a bar first and see if it is for you.
