The Whistler Calvados Cask Finish Blended Irish Whiskey (700ml)

$99. 99 Bottle
$1199.88 Dozen
ABV: 43%
Tasting note: Part of Boann distillery's 'Cask Finish' series. Irish whiskey often has a strong orchard fruit character, so Calvados should work well. This one has a creamy nose-feel with aromas of bubblegum, pear drops and vanilla, following with well-rounded, mouthfilling flavours of apple pie, cinnamon, juicy-fruit gum and a slightly acidic finish. The result here is simple but tasty. 43% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

Other reviews... Honeyed, malty and citrusy on the nose, with some dried exotic fruitiness. Viscous and mouth-coating, lovely bold fruitiness - dried pineapple and papaya. Some wood spice in the mid-palate.
