Introducing the Laird of Fintry, Cask-Strength edition, available on a first come first served basis annually at our Vernon distillery and online.
Distilled in traditional Single Malt Whisky fashion using our own locally-grown BC two row malting barley, yeast, and spring water, this whisky is aged for five years in American white oak casks and finished for six months in Quails’ Gate Old Vines Fortified Foch French oak barrels.
So what is ‘Cask strength’?
Known as ‘barrel-proof’ or ‘straight outta the barrel,’ Cask Strength means you get a chance to taste our Laird of Fintry at full strength, in this case 56%, and only lightly filtered.
Colour: A deep rich auburn
Nose: Layered waves of caramel, vanilla, stone fruit and spice
Taste: Rich elegant notes of toffee and caramel followed by a warm lingering dessert reminiscent of winter-spiced sticky toffee pudding
Mouth-feel: Coats the palate with a spicy warmth and a silky smooth
Finish: A long lingering warmth that stays with you and makes you yearn for more.
Act fast as for the 2022 release we barrel selected only four casks for bottling!

Sean Mullen –
From the presentation in the bottle, to the anticipation of opening the dark golden spirit, oh my….the aroma upon pouring my first serving, such nectar.
I could not bring myself to tasting s quickly, the want for inhaling the aromas….the caramels, the smooth “cooked” flavours. Never before had I experienced such layers of perfection.
To taste is not to disappoint, perfection. Top of me want list for such. You will not need search again for better.
Boyd Kenneth Goble –
I didn’t consider myself a drinker at all, I don’t drink Beer or Wine or most spirits BUT I entered and won a spot in the Laird of Fintry draw a few years ago when shopping for family at Christmas time. I had intended to gift all 3 bottles but decided to keep one to have around in case.
I decided to pop it open and have a sip or two and that’s when I realized I am a Whiskey Drinker afterall.
I Love the regular a lot but the Cask Strength has to be my Favorite.
I now look forward to an email from OSCD hoping to win again and I have but now I keep them to myself!
I encourage everyone to try these Spirits out, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Oh Yeah the Absinthe is wonderful as well.
