A true collaborative effort from the team in Boann Distillery and their sister brewery Boyne Brewhouse. Initially aged in ex-bourbon casks, the Whistler Premium Blend is finished in ex-oloroso sherry hogsheads that previously held Boyne’s award-winning Imperial Stout. Just 6 months was necessary for the rich aromas coffee and chocolate to infuse, with some dried fruit notes to boot from the sherry influence. Like many distilleries across Ireland, Boann are relatively new to the scene. They are based in the town of Drogheda, close to Slane and Listowel distilleries. Drogheda has a rich history of brewing so it’s only fitting for Boann to explore their heritage with this unique beautiful expression.
Freshly disgorged Single Malt casks were filled with the award winning O’Haras Imperial Stout, imparting the stouts wonderful rich flavours into the wood. We then refill these seasoned casks with our blend of Irish Malt, Wheat, and 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.

This Wicklow Rare blend is a mix of 80% grain whiskey and 20% 10 Year Old malt whiskey. It was matured in ex-bourbon casks for most of its life before being finished in Oloroso Sherry butts. A really lovely whiskey that comes in an elegant bottle.
