CASK FINISH SERIES
Sit and whistle a while
Whistled into life one fabled New Year’s Eve, this whiskey has notes of family tradition and history. The Whistler is a whiskey of a noteworthy craft that is as old as the story told, the written word and the whistled tune.
Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish
Triple Distilled for extra smoothness, our blend is a choice of the finest Irish malt and grain whiskeys, aged in two cask types; ex-bourbon and oloroso sherry. Firstly the bourbon barrels give the whiskey its sweet warmth and the oloroso casks deliver the unique fruity tones which are synonymous with the Whistler.
Dry sherbet lemon, white grape, walnut, nougat with creamy raspberry and a hint of tropical fruits.
Bergamot orange, mouth coating nougat, a slight minerality, tied together with a hint of coconut, banana and a brief pear note.
Sweet, lingering finish with a dry wood prickle.
Calvados Cask Finish
Triple distilled for extra smoothness, our blend is a choice of the finest Irish Malt and Grain whiskeys.
These whiskeys are first aged in ex-bourbon barrels before being married and finished in some of Normandy’s finest Calvados Casks. It is the Calvados finish that gives the whiskey its delicious apple nose and luxurious creamy body underneath.
Apple drops, fresh citrus zest, creamy and luscious toffee undertones with banana, apricot, melon and creamy red raspberries.
Sweet peach on the fore with pear and a bright fresh citrus zest. Malt undertone with creamy vanilla underneath.
Long and creamy with hints of pear and citrus zest remaining.
Imperial Stout Cask Finish
Freshly disgorged Whistler 7 year old Single Malt casks were filled with our award winning Boyne Brewhouse Imperial Stout, imparting our stouts wonderful rich flavours into the wood. We then refill these seasoned casks with our blend of Irish Malt and Single Grain whiskeys which bestow deeper notes of roasted coffee and cacao nibs.
Dark berries mixed with a hint of bitter coffee and creamy cocoa.
The creaminess from the cocoa follows through, pairing beautifully with the subtle coffee tones. This is rounded out by hints of caramel.
Long, lingering with a creamy mouthfeel.
