Found North 16 Year Cask Strength Rye Whisky Batch 001

3 reviews
Found North’s goal for Batch 001 was to create a cask strength rye with a robust spice profile, while layering in fruit, florality, sweet viscosity, and oak tannins. Fans of rye will love the combination of warming cinnamon and cayenne spice, dark berry fruits, and surprisingly sweet caramel. "Rye whisky has so much room for exploration. We didn't want to re-package the same whisky that's already on the market." - Zach Taylor

The 16 year rye component sets the stage with bold and herbaceous spice, while also adding a smoldering earthy quality and ruddy fruitiness from 3 years spent in Hungarian oak. The 17 year rye aged for 3 years in ex-Speyside Scotch casks lends bright fruit notes and a dash of honeyed floral notes. Finally, the 20 year corn whisky aged 7 years in new American oak adds creaminess, a touch of wood, and a fabulously long finish, pulling everything together into a cask strength bottling with a dangerously well-integrated 57.1% abv.
