West Cork Distillers, in partnership with U.S. importer M.S. Walker, announced the re-release of Black Reserve Irish Whiskey. After completely selling out of the 4,800 bottles previously imported, consumer demand prompted the company to release another 4,800 bottles in the U.S. market for 2018. West Cork Black Reserve is made by blending malted and un-malted grain whiskey, which is then aged in bourbon casks for four to five years before being finished in lightly toasted, heavily charred No. 4 first-fill bourbon casks for an additional six months, the company says. The process produces a slightly smoky, vanilla-rich sweet whiskey, it says. Bottled at 43 percent alcohol by volume, the whiskey is dark mahogany in color, with aromas of malt, vanilla and a lingering sweetness, it adds. West Cork Black Reserve Irish Whiskey has a suggested retail price of $39.99 nationwide.
