An Irish Single Malt at the heart of the brand — aged five years in Bourbon barrels and two more in Sherry casks for a 100% delicious dram.

Patrick Cooney knows Irish Spirits. He and his brother Nicholas purchased Gleeson — building the beverage-maker through organic growth and acquisitions to a nine-figure Irish giant. Patrick sold Gleeson in 2012 and has turned the family’s attention toward a new legacy — the Na Cuana beverage company and the Boann Distillery. It’s a true family business with his wife Marie, his daughters Sally-Anne and Celestine, and their sons Peter, Patrick, and James. Thier brands include Adams Ciders, Boyne Brewhouse Craft Beer, Robert A. Murray Irish Cream Liqueurs, and The Whistler Irish Whiskies.

The Whistler 'The Blue Note' 7 Year Old was the first core release. The formula sets the tone and structure for the rest of the lineup. It starts with pure Irish pot-stilled Single Malt aged for five years in ex-Bourbon barrels. The Spirits is transferred to Oloroso Sherry hogsheads for two more full years — a mighty long finishing by any standard — to total seven years of maturation. Of course, no chill-filtration or artificial nastiness is needed when you bottled your Single Malt at a PERFECT 46% ABV… which is what they do.

Smartass Corner:
"The Blue Note" is a term from Jazz musicians. It is used to describe a "note that comes after" another note, setting the tone and character of the music and setting it apart. This seems to be an excellent name for their first Single Malt release.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Bright Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
A zesty lemon meringue note greets you on the nose, followed by creamy caramel and plums.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The taste profile opens dry with oak tannins and notes of marmalade, lemon curd, red berries, and a dash of white pepper.

The finish continues with the lemon influence that opens up to warm, toasted wood.
Ratings & Reviews
Like it a lot very smooth.
Nose: Tart acidity of berries and citrus, rose petal, melon, a bit of grass and honey. Taste: Lemon, pepper, red wine tannin, punch. Finish: long lingering pepper, hint of smoke. Second and third tastings have sold me that this is an outstanding Irish whisky. There is such a lush fruity and floral quality, and the proof gives you a lingering peppery reminder. This has a lot more going on than the average Irish dram.
