West Cork Stout Cask finished blended Irish whiskey is a 75:25 blend of grain & malt Irish whiskey crafted using Irish malted barley and Irish wheat, tripled distilled and aged in first fill bourbon casks for four years. The malt and grain components are then blended and aged for an additional 6 months in casks that had held Ireland’s Blacks of Kinsale’s beloved Stout offering. The whiskey delivers aromas of chocolate, raisins and cracked nuts, with flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla.
