The West Cork Distillery started as a pet project by John O’ Connell, Denis McCarthy, and Ger McCarthy in 2003 in Union Hall, West Cork. In 2013, after much expansion, WCD moved to a larger distillery in Skibbereen, West Cork where it now resides. It now operates as only one of two independent distilleries in Ireland. That means they actually make their own whiskey that somehow, someway costs about the same as a bottle of 10-year-old Bushmills, despite the fact that they're an independent distillery with heaven knows how much debt and overhead to account for. They're also the only producer in Ireland to actually malt their own barley and use Irish spring water for the production process, resulting in a softer, more delicate spirit. The classic blend has gobs of fruit and vanilla on the nose that turn into a pleasant mixture of fresh fruit and grain on the palate. The finish is clean and malty with more sweet grains on the back end. Jameson who?

Very pleasant, soft and easy to drink Irish blended whiskey. It has inviting aromas with hints of vanilla and malt. In the mouth it is round and light with subtle vanilla undertones. A great whiskey for a party or to relax with.

A fantastic, easy going Irish whiskey to have around the house for making cocktails but also soft enough to drink straight at the end of the evening! New favorite for under $30!
