In the heart of the Boyne Valley, the Cooney family continues a long tradition of excellence. For their The Whistler whiskeys, the raw materials used are 100% natural and 100% Irish, and the water is drawn from the family spring. Distillation is carried out in hand-crafted copper stills and the family’s 2,000 casks provide an infinite variety of ageing options.
This whiskey is a blend of single malt whiskeys (20%) and grain (80%), aged in Bourbon casks and then finished for 6 months in Oloroso sherry casks under the watchful eye of The Whistler’s Cellar Master.

The finish is long with notes of dry oak tannins, and a slight honeyed sweetness
