This is a distinctive spirit that has been matured for 15 years in barrels made from charred American oak. Despite the "barrel proof" label, it clocks in at a surprisingly low 39.9% ABV due to high evaporation during aging. It boasts a complex flavor profile with tropical fruit notes alongside hints of leather and oak.

Description

Cascade Moon 15 Year Old Barrel Proof is an intriguing whiskey that defies expectations. Aged for a complete 15 years within freshly charred barrels made of American oak, it leads you through a spectrum of contrasting flavors. Despite the “barrel proof” label, which typically indicates a high alcohol content, this whiskey surprisingly sits at a low 39.9% ABV. This is attributed to a phenomenon known as the “angel’s share,” where a significant amount of alcohol evaporates during the extended aging process.

Directly on target, Cascade Moon 15 Year Old surprises with an unexpected twist. Instead of the usual bold oak and caramel notes associated with aged whiskey, you’re greeted with a bright and almost tropical aroma. Hints of pineapple, mango, or other exotic fruits mingle with a touch of sweetness. Then, the deeper, richer notes emerge – leather, vanilla, and a subtle smokiness from the charred oak barrels. 

The taste is expected to be well-developed, reflecting the long aging. Reviews suggest that the initial tropical fruitiness carries through on the palate, balanced by the oaky spice and hints of leather. The low ABV translates to a smooth and easy-drinking experience, despite the 15 years spent maturing. Some reviewers even describe it as having a mellow, almost creamy texture.

The finish of Cascade Moon 15 Year Old is where the oak influence truly shines. The lingering notes of vanilla and spice provide a satisfying closure, reminding you of the spirit’s age and depth.
