The Whistler Imperial Stout Cask Finish Irish Whiskey

This complex whiskey smells lush and sweet, though the palate is less so, reading as hoppy and darkly spiced with clove and allspice. Adding water frames it with cocoa, citrus and espresso bitterness. What's in the glass is a mix of malt and grain Irish whiskeys, finished in an ex-oloroso Sherry barrel that was filled with Boyne Brewhouse Imperial Stout, then emptied to finish the whiskey.
