Review: Laird of Fintry Single Malt (Okanagan Spirits)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 5, 2022

Laird of Fintry Single Malt is produced in small batches at the Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery. This whisky came to my attention when I was acting as a juror for the 2022 Canadian Whisky Awards. I ear marked my blind sample (No. 28 by the way) as one which stood out in its grouping and after the judging was complete and the whiskies were unblinded, I decided I should take the remainder of my sample and write up more detailed tasting notes. I was not surprised that Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery was named 2022 Canadian Whisky Awards Craft Distillery of the Year based on the strength of this and the other whiskies in their growing portfolio.

Laird of Fintry Single Malt  is a bit of a unicorn. The spirit is available only once per year via a lottery drawing at the Distillery. It is produced using 100% B.C. malted barley and aged in both French and American Oak casks.

Here is a link to my full review:

Review: Laird of Fintry Single Malt (Okanagan Spirits)

“… Heather, meadow grass and flowers, willow with a light sweetness riding the wind currents.  Mint, hints of vanilla and almond. The scents and smells are pleasant and engaging with a lightly herbal character accented by floral impressions. I like the nose which demonstrates nuance and finesse …”

Please enjoy my review which concludes with my serving suggestion, the Laird of the Fintry Cocktail.
