Our first whisky!
100% Ontario rye grain, sourced from community-based mills who buy primarily from small, organic, family farms in their area. Aged 3 years in a new #3 char American Oak cask.
"This is very spicy, and at the outset I know it is shaping up to be a great rye. It has the deep vegetal and spicy characteristics that I love in big rye whisky. The nose has apple, caramel, arugula, baking spice, lilac, brown sugar, and dried fruit – this is very good! The palate carries on from the nose, with a bit more of a bracing oak character. The spice, arugula, and dry spices really come through on the palate and lead through to the finish. It’s balanced with sweet oak and dried fruit. The finish has dried fruit, spice, arugula, caramel, oak, dried chanterelle mushrooms, and fennel."
