Introducing the Laird of Fintry, Cask-Strength edition, available on a first come first served basis annually at both of our distilleries 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.
