Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Found North

The nose smells of a freshly baked blueberry muffin with a swirl of blackberry buttercream frosting. The muffin is caked with a glaze of cane sugar, resting atop of dried fig and apple crisp. The whisky lands on the palate, bright, fresh and cooling, like the first breath of an autumn morning. The palate erupts with a mix of tangy, tart sweetness, homemade whipped cream and an apple cider donut that fell into a pile of freshly fallen leaves.

Additional Notes

The ex-Madeira aged rye was unruly and vivacious, requiring four separate corn components to round out the profile and give the whisky its shockingly creamy texture. To accomplish this, we blended in a 22 year corn component in new wood, a 23 year corn component in new wood, a 23 year corn component in ex-Bourbon, and our favorite, a 26 year corn component in Hungarian oak. Lastly, we used a 19 year Hungarian oak aged rye to provide Batch 008 with the spicy backbone and texture on the finish.
