Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye Whiskey
Named 2021 “World Whiskey of the Year” by a well-known whiskey author and a Double Gold winner at the SF Spirits Competition, Alberta Premium Cask Strength is produced by Alberta Distillers in Calgary from Canadian prairie grain and water sourced from the Rocky Mountains. In the US, their whisky is more commonly known by producers who source and bottle their rye whiskey, including WhistlePig and Masterson's. On the palate, it’s a spicy, honeyed explosion with some subtle notes of dark chocolate and dark fruit. And yet, that spice dissipates quickly and pleasantly on the finish. It’s hard to go from subtle to bold to smooth, but this is a rye that deftly straddles all those lines.
