The Whistler range of single malt whiskey’s was christened as such, as Patrick Cooney owner of Boann distillery is always whistling around the distillery and his family who work with him thought it would be a nice note to reflect this hobby in the first range of whiskey’s. The Whistler single malts stand out due to the careful selection of quality oloroso sherry casks used for finishing.
This whiskey has a vibrant nose with fresh orchard aromas, apple-wood, orange zest and Christmas cake tones. Add some spice, liquorice and pink lady apples to show just how full and lush this nose is.
The palate is juicy with all the aromas from the nose flowing onto the palate along with coacoa, zesty oak , warm apricots with honeyed edges.There is a lovely creamy texture to this whiskey.
Incredible aromas! Touches of milk chocolate, mocha, lemon and orange peel, cinnamon, bourbon vanilla and apricots.
Thick and mouth-filling. Flavours of creme caramel, vanilla, apricots, white grapes, sultanas, and salted meats.
Overall this is a well balanced cask-strength whiskey with undertones of apricots and cinnamon.
Where to Drink: The Whistler 7 Year Old Cask Strength
Keep it local. The Glyde Inn sits here at the heart of natural beauty. A place of sandy beach, deep blue sea and distant granite mountains; all culminating in a quiet, friendly atmosphere that surpasses expectations. Situated in Annagassan, a place famous for Linn Duachaill, a Viking Longphort overlooking the Cooley and Mourne Mountains.
