Two Brewers Yukon Single Malt – Classic Releases

Posted by Arctic Wolf on February 29, 2020

In 2009, the folks at Yukon Brewing decided that it was time to expand their horizons, and so they grabbed a still, formed the Yukon Spirits Company, and began to make whisky. When I first learned about this several years ago I was a little surprised. The Yukon is quite a ways north and it is not a place where you would naturally think of folks making beer, let alone whisky. Then again it just might have been the perfect place for both the start-up beer and spirits companies. You see up in the North, they like to support one another, and it wasn’t long before Yukon Brewing and Yukon Spirits were doing a nice business supplying northern communities.

A few years ago I reviewed  Yukon Brewers Classic Single Malt Release No. 1 (here),  Today I am revisiting their Classic Releases by taking a look at their recent Classic Releases No. 13 and No. 16. I tasted both Single Malts recently and found that my scores were very similar between the two drams. So rather than writing two reviews, I felt one review covering both releases was sufficient. The tasting notes included here are for Release No. 13, but the scores for Release No. 16 would be similar.

Here is my review:

Review: Two Brewers Yukon Single Malt – Classic Releases:

“… The initial nose is honeyed with obvious aromas of vanilla, almond and malt barley. Some oak spices begin to build (I believe both releases of the whisky are about 4 years old) with fine spices and impressions of dusty straw and chaff …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with a cocktail suggestion for you enjoyment, Norther Aurora.
