A few years ago I walked into a Scottish supermarket & noted the variety & depth of whisky choices far exceeded that provided in similar Irish stores.
Well not any longer!
Lidl have just released 5 different styles of whiskey under their own exclusive Dundalgan brand – made for them by West Cork Distillers.
Comprising of a blend, charred cask blend & 3 single malts finished in Stout, IPA or Sherry casks – there’s a bottle to suit every palate!
Having recently enjoyed West Cork’s own Stout Cask – I thought I’d diversify into the Dundalgan IPA.
I wasn’t disappointed!
A fresh, light, bright & gently fruity note greeted me with a bit of depth.
Quite rich on the palate, the IPA cask brought some interesting & complex notes to this malt.
A touch of welcoming spice & gentle prickliness on the finish gave character to this engaging edition.
Ironically I’m not an IPA fan when it comes to beer – I find them too bitter – but this Dundalgan whiskey works a treat!
Makes me want to try out the whole range!

Right, I’ll have a shot at them so. The Jameson IPA caskmates wasn’t to my liking but the original Dundalgans, both the charred and straight blends were lovely easy drinkers. I’d wrongly thought they were Cooley. West Cork Distillers are really flying now. Must be making a good killing.
