This is the 11th release in the Orphan barrel series, but the first to be made of Canadian whisky. It is from a mash of 97% corn and 3% malted barley. If you were ever wondering how much malted barley you need to ferment a mash of mostly corn, now you know. The whisky is from Crown Royal's distillery in Gimli Manitoba. It was bottled at 41% after maturing 25 years in American oak.
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: very decadent, big hits of double caramel corn, silky tendrils of honey and toasted oak; apple crumble with loads of brown sugar and cinnamon; a touch on the oil sie; Aunt Jemima's Syrup and Werther's caramels.
Palate: soft, still silky with honey and floral tones; light, delicate and layered; overripe plums, prunes and cooked raisins with milk chocolate and some decadent spice; the caramel corn is still there as is the apple crumble with loads of brown sugar.
Finish: medium-short, but very pleasant and elegant.
Comment: this is a lovely Canadian whisky, the classic corn profile has been filled out nicely with very balanced oak integration.
Producer's Tasting Note: "Beginning with a vanilla, toffee and a delicate toasted oak scent, Entrapment tastes light and creamy with hints of tobacco and walnut. The finish is warm with notes of dried fruits reminiscent of plums and raisins."
