A 6-year-old Blend of Malt & Pot Still, aged in ex-bourbon casks for at least 5 years before a final 7 months in a single 220L French Oak cask from Ontario- Canada, where it was previously used to age Cabernet Franc Ice Wine. This extremely limited whiskey is bottled at cask strength with only 308 bottles available. Each one is hand labeled, wax-sealed, and stamped with the Polaris symbol.
Nose: A captivating melody of sweet strawberry, red apple and all spice.
Palate: A velvet glove envelopes the tongue. Creamy bites of malty sweetness, cherries and strawberries, intertwined with a combination of cinnamon and clove we have come to love, marzipan finds its mark with bolder chilli notes towards the back.
Finish: A long lasting spice note dissipates to find finish of dark cacao, with delicate dryness akin to that of well-made Italian espresso.
A blend of approximately 110 litres of single malt with 105 litres of pot still, married together firstly in a second-fill Cab Franc Ice Wine barrel in December of 2022, before transferring to a fresh first fill ice wine cask in March of 2023. The result is a whiskey of deep complexity. The pot still spice is abundant throughout while the malt provides mouth coating texture and sweetness.
