The Whistler Double Oaked Blended Irish Whiskey, 40%

Price: $30 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Sweetness and richness were my first impressions of this sourced whiskey blended at Boann Distillery, and it's the oloroso sherry finish that's made all the difference. Apple, barley sugar, aromatic spices, baked citrus, cherry, and dried apricot against a backbone of grain. Vanilla fudge, baked fruit desserts, and apple, it's rich, smooth, and creamy with swirling spices before returning to a finish of vanilla, spice, and dried apple.
