|Forty Creek Barrel Select
|Notes from John Hall, Whisky Maker
Forty Creek Barrel Select Whisky is a premium Canadian Whisky. It has been rated the #1 tasting whisky in North America by discerning Whisky Judges and has taken home the most esteemed accolades possible for a whisky.
The barrels chosen for Forty Creek Barrel Select are selected for their unique characteristics and the rich earthiness they provide to the spirit.
The Result is a unique whisky that is smooth and mellow but also intense and complex with a character of its own.
This unique barrel selection process results in a whisky where aromas of honey, vanilla and apricot fuse with toasty oak, black walnut and spice. The flavour is rich and bold on the palate and is completed in a smooth, long finish.
