Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Found North

The nose flows from the glass, a torrent of brown sugar, taffy and burnt caramel, followed by rivulets of torched lemon peel, creme brûlée and dried pear. Beneath the strawberry puree notes, graham cracker, vanillins and maple lie in wait. Lastly the nose presents a lovely minerality, like fresh rain on granite or a limestone pulled from a fast-flowing stream. The whisky lands in a creamy rush. The sweet cinnamon residue crystallizes on the mid-palate. The growing tannic friction between nutmeg and black pepper crackles into the side palate, before a steady warmth and the sweet aroma of an old leather armchair settle into the finish. The oily, buttery mouthfeel carries a dark chocolate note deep into the finish, where the softening oak tannins and treacle light the kindling in your chest.

Additional Notes

18-24 Year Old Whiskies Aged in New American, Ex-Bourbon & Hungarian Oak Barrels. They matched the ‘98 with a pair of 22 year corn components, one in ex-bourbon and the other in new American oak. The 22 year in ex-bourbon, allowed the fruit and floral notes to ripen, while the 22 year in new American oak added velvety tannins and lavish wood sugars.
