Our first ever KWM exclusive single cask of 100% rye whisky was selected by our team at Shelter Point Distillery on Vancouver Island, but it was distilled in Calgary at Alberta Distillers... Distilled in 2009 the whisky has been bottled after 9 years at 59.6%. 240 total bottles!
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: maple syrup, peanut brittle, cloves just plucked from a honey baked ham and treacle tarts; oily with loads of spice; there was a hint of dill at first but it quickly vanished; dark fruits, licorice root and fig jam; oh and glazed pork belly (seriously).
Palate: big, oily, syrupy and spicy; decadent Demerara and brown sugars before bacon infused dark chocolate and crisp spices: fennel, cloves and licorice root; more cloves plucked from a honey baked ham and sweet and sour pork; silky vanilla with dates and figs are late to the party.
Finish: insanely long, oily, coating and decadent with more dark fruits and soft spices; a touch of glazed pork belly.
Comment: wow... this was a serendipitous discovery on visiting Shelter point with Evan and Curt in September.
