This is batch 003 release from Found North.
64% Rye | 32% Corn | 4% Malted Barley
From Found North: Batch 003 is a 5-whisky blend created to accentuate a vibrant, zesty, fruit-forward nose and palate combination rarely seen in rye whisky. The whisky was built around an 18 year old rye aged in ex-tequila barrels with a verdant and floral nose combined with an herbaceous spiciness. We enriched the fruitiness by blending in an additional 18 year rye aged in ex-Speyside scotch casks and a surprisingly delicate 21 year old corn component aged in used American oak. Lastly, we provided a foundation of baking spices and brown sugar using a 17 year rye and a 25 year corn, both aged in Hungarian oak.
This whisky starts with a trove of striking berry notes, citrus and honeysuckle, dovetailing gracefully into a silky, buttery mid-palate, before settling into its lengthy rye undertones that provide a resounding, deep, spicy finish. Each sip tastes like someone baked an apple crisp right onto your palate, showing robust cinnamon and a lingering gingerbread finish that mingles with gentle tannins.
