#33 Calgary Stampede (Commemorative) 25 Year Old Whisky

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 22, 2015

For over 100 years now the Calgary Stampede has brought people from all over the world together to experience the region’s unique western heritage and values. In the summer of 2012, Highwood Distillers (Alberta’s only privately owned distillery) joined in and celebrated the Centennial of the Calgary Stampede by producing an exclusive Limited Edition Ultra-Premium 25 Year Old Commemorative Canadian Rye Whisky.

Stampede WhiskyThe Calgary Stampede (Commemorative) Whisky is a single bond offering produced entirely from corn distillate and aged for 25 years in charred American white oak. It is blended entirely with naturally sourced Rocky Mountain spring water, and was limited to a production of only 6000 bottles. In order to maintain good contact with the oak during the lengthy aging process, this bond was re-gauged or re-barreled twice during its aging life. New barrels were not introduced when Highwood distiller’s made the liquid consolidation. Instead they chose to maintain the aging process in the original barrels into which the spirit began its maturation.

Here is a link to the review of the #33 spirit on my Rum Howler Top 100 Spirits Countdown of the best spirits I have ever tasted.

#33 – Calgary Stampede (Commemorative) 25 Year Old Whisky

“… The initial nose is rich with smells of oak and cedar. Butterscotch notes rise into the air accompanied by strong scents of honeycomb and cereal. As the glass sits, the oak spices continue to grow above the glass. I also receive impressions of melted vanilla ice cream, some appealing notes of marmalade and marzipan, and some strong notes of corn whisky rising into the merry little breezes. This is very appealing …”
