Go on a Bourbon tour

Cask Matured, Cask Strength and Single Barrel Bourbon

This month we're taking you from Vancouver through the northern most mainland distillery in Scotland, and back to Chicago, USA.

As you may know, the most popular cask to mature Whisk(e)y in is a Bourbon cask, but there's a lot more to bourbon influence than meets the eye. 

In Vancouver, Shelter Point is producing a cross-border inspired artisanal Single Malt Whisky. With hand-selected ex-Tennessee Whiskey Barrels (Jack Daniels), the taste profile is influenced showing of malt, nuts, fruit, caramel, cocoa and spice. Oatmeal-raisin cookies fly off the nose, with a crisp toasty finish. 

The team at Wolfburn have been producing Whisky since 2013, with their newest release, The Langskip is their oldest Whisky to date at 5 years, and is an absolute treat to the senses. Flavours burst onto the palate, rich and sweet, including maple syrup, dark chocolate, almonds and raisins. Matured entirely in first-fill bourbon casks,  this cask strength whisky has a unique richness and an extraordinary depth of flavour.

We finish with the Koval Single Barrel Bourbon Whisky, matured in charred new American oak barrel, with the new kid on the block Millet and corn complementing each other, neither taking the lead. Out of the bottle, this duet opens with notes of mango chutney, while the millet renders a soft whisper of vanilla throughout.

Take yourself on an educational journal, with expert written tasting notes to accompany your exploration through Bourbons influence on Whisky.
