Latitude 55 Canadian Whisky Batch #2 is a blend of two carefully selected single distill rye whiskies, each aged for 3 years in fresh-dumped rye barrels from Heaven Hill Distillery in Kentucky. We distilled, barreled, blended, and bottled this extremely limited second whisky release to showcase the bold, earthy flavours of Canadian rye with the sweet, soft touch of Canadian wheat added for balance. 43% ABV
*Only 396 bottles produced*
Warm amber with highlights of spun gold.
Early morning bakery shop aromas of vanilla cake, honey, and fresh bread greet you before yielding to the bright, fruity esters of Bartlett pear and Granny Smith apple. Underlying notes of dust and oak are present throughout.
Dominated by dry, library leather tannins that carry a noticeable cereal body from front to back. A light caramel sweetness is complemented by bold baking spices and smoked maple walnuts.
Warm and lingering, the astringency on the palate persists as distinctive grassy and clove characteristics take over.
SERVED WITH A FEW DROPS OF WATER
Here the small addition of wheat in the mash bill opens up and softens the nose and palate to deliver sweet, creamy textures and aromas. Graham cracker, black pepper, and nutty flavours emerge.
