Boann Distillery has entered an exclusive whiskey partnership with one of Ireland’s most beloved hotels. We have teamed up with Dublin’s Merrion Hotel to create The Whistler Merrion Hotel 10 Year Old Single Malt Single Cask Release.
We are thrilled with our first collaboration with The Merrion, which is a perfect fit for a whiskey as prestigious as The Whistler. This very special, 10-year-old single malt will be available only at The Merrion. Matured in a reimagined French oak barrique, previously used for Premier Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux and fired to add a gently toasted layer of taste, it was disgorged and bottled exclusively for the hotel and is inviting, elegant and sophisticated. On the nose, the Merrion’s Whistler has notes of velvety honey, with stewed fruit, poached pear and blackcurrant. Vanilla, toffee and spice comes next, along with notes of pastry and white chocolate. All accompanied by a hint of minerality and herbal freshness. On the palate, it has a rich and silky texture. Stewed apples and poached pear are joined by tropical fruit and a malty sweetness with soft spice and fruit lingering on the finish.
To celebrate the release of this special bottling, Boann Distillery’s Head Distiller Alex Witt, led a Fireside Chat featuring Boann’s whiskeys at The Merrion’s Bar No.23 on October 3rd. Guests enjoyed a guided tasting beginning with The Whistler Merrion Hotel 10 Year Old Single Malt Single Cask Release, followed by two as of yet unreleased Whistler Whiskeys; a Whistler 14-year-old white port single cask and a Whistler 21-year-old Madeira finish. Also on the tasting menu were Boann Distillery’s Winter Solstice and Summer Solstice Single Pot Still Irish Whiskeys.
The Whistler Merrion Hotel 10 Year Old Single Malt Single Cask Release is exclusively available at The Cellar Bar and Bar No. 23 at the Merrion Hotel, Dublin.
