Cask 53 Single Cask Rye Whisky (64.2% alc./vol.) (Cask Strength)


Single cask, cask strength gold medal winning rye whisky. 64.2%

Our inaugural release under the brand-new Master Distiller Single Barrel program is finally here! Every week we sample roughly a dozen whisky barrels aging in the warehouse. Each barrel is sampled to see where it is in the aging process and copious notes are written on the nose, palate and finish of each whisky.

Every now and then we come across a very special barrel that is so unique in flavour, big and bold, and well very balanced, it stands out from the rest. We then put a physical mark on it, making all the other barrels very jealous. All told less than 3% of the barrels we sample are set aside for single barrel release, showing you how truly special and precious these casks are.

Each release will be at full barrel strength and will feature a gold sticker with the cask number and year bottled handwritten on it, making it perfect for collecting.

The first barrel to be released under this new and ongoing program is Cask #53. Notes include:

BACKGROUND: 100% BC rye grain, aged 4+ years, 64.2% cask strength

AWARD: Gold Medal at the Canadian Whisky Awards 2023

NOSE: Spicy with distinct notes of rye, white pepper, Kraft caramel candy squares and marzipan, with hints of old leather, anise, allspice and freshly baked rye bread.

TASTE: Clove, rye, molasses and honey mingle together with hints of candy apple, vanilla and oak. Also present are whispers of malt, caramel, baking spices, and espresso

FINISH: Long and sweetly spiced, buttery and warm finish
