The Rum Howler’s #13 Canadian Whisky of 2015 – Forty Creek Double Barrel
Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 12, 2015
Forty Creek’s Whisky Maker John Hall, ages rye, barley and corn whiskies in their own special barrels, and then brings them together for an unspecified amount of time in re-used sherry barrels to marry the flavours of each whisky together. The result is his flagship whisky, Forty Creek Barrel Select. When making the Forty Creek Double Barrel Reserve, he decided to place the three whiskies into seasoned bourbon barrels. This double barreling allows the subtle qualities offered by the bourbon barrel to enhance the finishing of the whisky.
Although originally a ‘special edition’ whisky, the Forty Creek Double Barrel Reserve has become one of the major flag bearers of the Forty Creek brand and is produced in limited quantities each year.
