2019 Rum Howler Favourite 20 Canadian Whiskies: #8 – Last Mountain Single Cask 100 % Wheat Whisky 

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 15, 2019

The Last Mountain Distillery is Saskatchewan’s first micro distillery. It is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Colin and Meredith Schmidt. I have been following the Distillery ever since it opened in 2010. Last Mountain was in fact one of the very first Micro Distilleries to open its doors in Canada, and right from the very beginning the whisky they crafted caught my attention.

In my opinion their Single Cask 100 % Wheat whisky is one of the best spirits they have crafted to date. Wheat has a soft smooth flavour when distilled, and this characteristic make it an ideal grain for an overproof bottling where its subtle flavours can be given more expression.

Alas the Last Mountain spirits do not see much exposure outside of Saskatchewan, which is a real pity because the rest of the Country is missing out.

Review: Last Mountain Single Cask 100 % Wheat Whisky

“… The whisky brings all that flavour that the nose implied with lush butterscotch and milk chocolate flavours oozing out of the oak spice. The whisky was aged in a bourbon barrel and their certainly is a nice ribbon of corn whisky running through the spirit. Vanilla, baking spices, honeycomb and orange peel (and orange marmalade) join in the onrush …”

Chimo!
