“How the years whistle by”
This ten year old single malt hails from Boann Distillery in the historical Boyne Valley in county Meath. Boann; legend has it that the Irish goddess Boann created the river Boyne. It is her wild nature, her striking boldness that informs their creativity and ambition.
The nose of this whiskey is comforting with aromas of a warm kitchen after baking. Touches of golden syrup, treacle cake, baked ginger bread get the mouth watering. As it opens touches of sweet floral tones, mandarin, fresh pine and pencil shaving start to pop.
On the palate there are touches of spicy vanilla, baked goods, walnuts and a faint hint of leather lead you into quite an interesting palate. Hints of apricot , salted caramel and nutmeg add to the palate with its smooth and mouth-filling texture.
There is a wonderful dimension of complexity to this whiskey, one which we here at the Whiskey Trail HQ adore.
