Description

This 20-year aged rye whiskey is a true connoisseur’s delight. Crafted with 100% rye grain, it undergoes a meticulous double pot distillation process before spending two decades maturing in brand new, heavily charred American oak barrels. This unique aging approach, combined with the cold Canadian climate where the barrels rest, allows the rye to develop a rich and complex flavor profile without becoming overwhelmed by oaky tannins.

Aromatic Journey

The first impression comes from the inviting aroma. Take a deep breath and you’ll be greeted by a symphony of warm baking spices like cinnamon and clove. Hints of marzipan and toffee add a touch of sweetness, while a whisper of citrus and peppermint provides a refreshing counterpoint. Underlying all of this is the unmistakable rye spice, promising a bold yet balanced experience on the palate.

Flavor Explosion on the Palate

The first sip of Lock Stock & Barrel 20 Year is a revelation. The rye character takes center stage, offering a peppery kick that’s both assertive and invigorating. But this rye isn’t all bite; it’s beautifully complemented by a wave of sweetness reminiscent of caramel, butterscotch, and dried fruits like apricot and cantaloupe. Hints of cocoa powder and espresso add a touch of depth and complexity, while the oak influence whispers in the background, providing a subtle vanilla and toasted note.

A Lingering Finish

As the last sip fades away, the luxurious texture of this rye whiskey lingers on the tongue. The peppery spice gradually mellows, leaving behind a pleasant warmth and a lingering sweetness that evokes honeyed rye and butterscotch. It’s a truly satisfying conclusion to a remarkable tasting experience.
