    $99. 99 Bottle
    $1199.88 Dozen
    ABV: 43%
    Tasting note: Having matured a seven year old sourced Irish whiskey, casks were emptied and refilled with Boyne Brewhouse Imperial Stout for a short time. The casks were then emptied and re-filled with sourced malt and grain whiskey. The finished blend has an atypical Irish bouquet with low definition choc-ripple biscuit aromas and a mildly grassy edge. Medium bodied flavours suggest green wood, ginger biscuits and cocoa. Ends oily, vaguely woody and gently warming. Doesn't inspire superlatives. 43% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

    Notes from Whistler... NOSE: Apple drops, fresh citrus zest, creamy and luscious toffee undertones with banana, apricot, melon and creamy red raspberries. PALATE: Sweet peach on the fore with pear and a bright fresh citrus zest. Malt undertone with creamy vanilla underneath. FINISH: Long and creamy with hints of pear and citrus zest remaining.
