The latest from Found North, the pre-eminent blenders of Canadian whiskey, this is batch #007. Comprised of a grain bill of 83% Corn, 16% Rye and 1% Barley, it's matured in Hungarian oak and bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering. Let's dive in!
Bold toffee, honey, sweet cream and vanilla bean. There's a faint, savory, mustiness as well: old paper, tobacco, raisins, toffee.
Thick and rich on the palate, it's punchy and syrupy, well layered. For 130+pf, it drinks much closer to 115 and is full of butter cream, toffee, sweet caramels and red berries. Hint of clove, pepper, graham cracker.
Long finish, syrupy and rich,. Hungarian Oak contributes really lovely tannin and baking spice here on the finish, blending nicely with the sweet buttercream, currant and honey.
Batch 007 continues the innovative success of Batch 006, driving high age statements combined with generous corn and a decadent finish.
