Reviews of purchase "The Pogues", 0.7 L
Whiskey copper-amber color.
The taste of the whiskey is filled with abundant tones of malt and a strong kernel of rich caramel notes. They are surrounded by delicate fruit nuances. The aftertaste is long, warm, with tender notes of spices and a hint of milk chocolate.
In the scent of whiskey, the tones of a green apple are felt, which complement the subtle nuances of stone fruit, nougat and vanilla.
Whiskey is used in pure form or with the addition of ice.
"West Cork" 10 Years - excellent Irish single malt, which is made from the best local ingredients: its own barley malt and soft spring water. All the work on the production of whiskey is done manually. Extract of whiskey for 10 years passes in American barrels from under the bourbon of the first filling. Before bottling whiskey does not pass cold filtration, so with time, a deposit may appear on the bottom of the bottle.
The West Cork (WCD) distillery, founded in 2003, was inspired by the proud history of food and beverage production in Cork County. Three friends - Denis McCarthy, Ger McCarthy and John O'Connell - by 2003 reached certain heights in their fields. Denis and Gehr were engaged in deep-water marine trawlers, and John was a research and development scientist for some of the major food and beverage companies. Having united, the friends decided to try themselves in the sphere of beverage production. First they experimented with light brown alcohols. In 2007, the trio produced "Dromberg", a fortified drink obtained by fermenting sugar beet and malt and aged on oak chips, using a method developed by O'Connell. Then came the drink "Lough Hyne", which was made on the same principle, but more sturdy and aged in barrels from Irish whiskey and bourbon. And only then friends went to the manufacture of whiskey.
All West Cork whiskeys are made from Irish ingredients: grains, spring water and barley, and WCD is the only Irish distillery that itself makes malt from its barley. In the production of whiskey, triple distillation is used, but the pots are only half filled to ensure maximum copper-vapor interaction. Previously, West Cork Distillers were based on a leased plant with an area of 10,000 square meters. feet in the Skibberin. In 2013, the turnover reached 3.5 million euros, and the time for expansion is coming. By 2016, WCD has moved to a new site, investing in its acquisition and modernization of about 1.5 million euros. Today West Cork Distillers is one of two independent distilleries in Ireland.
