The Perfect Valentine’s Gift for the Whiskey Lover in Your Life

A decadent Irish whiskey with an apt name for the day that’s in it, the Whistler P.X. I Love You Single Malt is the ideal gift for your Valentine this year.

Part of the Whistler range of Irish whiskey from Meath distillery, Boann, it is finished in hand-picked Spanish Pedro Ximenez (giving it its PX name) sherry casks for nine months, creating a delicious sherry nose. Made from 100% malted barley, it spent the first part of its life in ex-bourbon barrels. The dried fruits and brown sugar from the nose are joined by walnut and zesty citrus on the palate.

Whistler P.X. I Love You whiskey is priced at €55.95 for a 70cl bottle and can be purchased online from Boann Distillery at boanndistillery.ie Tasting Notes: NOSE Fantastically delicious sherry nose. Dried berries, raisins, cherries and sultanas/ golden raisins, with candied orange and sticky brown/ demerara sugar. PALATE Wood forward opening, with an incredibly viscous yet crisp palate. The dried fruits and brown sugar from the nose are joined on the palate by walnut, zesty citrus and a hint of leather. FINISH Walnut, dried fruits and the subtle wood prickle remain for a lengthy dry finish with a subtle hint of dark chocolate.
