A limited edition Canadian single malt distilled from barley grown in a single lot.
There were just 1,417 bottles of this release (August 2017) from the Shelter Point farm distillery, which was triple distilled through copper pot stills. Aged in both American and French oak.
This has been drawn from two triple-distilled casks of single malt and vatted with two casks of rye whisky. Very limited Australian allocation.
Official tasting notes:
“Distinct notes of vanilla fudge, dried fruits and hazelnut. The palate is honied and herbaceous with a luxurious assortment of dark chocolate cherries, leading to a warming spicy finish, with lingering oak and almond nougat.”
Shelter Point was founded in 2009 in British Columbia after Patrick Evans, a dairy farmer turned barley grower, decided to move into whisky. The Shelter Point farm was bought in 2005 and the distillery itself established in 2011. A seaside farm, they are one of the few whisky distilleries in the world to grow their barley and distil their whisky on site. The first release was May 2016 and we have seen small Australian allocations since.
