Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whisky glows with a rich, amber hue, showcasing a luxurious depth of color that hints at its robust cask strength nature. Its thick legs on the glass are evidence of the high alcohol content and richness of flavor.
On the nose, Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye captivates with an enthralling complexity. A robust aromatic profile unveils layers of rye spice, punctuated by notes of dark fruit, tobacco, and leather. The high proof manifests as a slight tingling sensation that is far from obtrusive; rather, it primes the senses for the experience to come.
This is where the whisky truly shines. The first sip envelops the palate with an orchestra of flavors: caramel, vanilla, and toasted oak provide a sweet introduction, which quickly makes way for a peppery rye spice crescendo. At cask strength, the whisky offers an intense yet balanced array of flavors, from dried fruits to hints of chocolate, all intermingled with the dominant rye grain's spicy, earthy character.
The finish is long, warming, and expansive, underpinned by the enduring notes of rye and a certain mineral quality that could only come from Alberta's glacial water sources. The finale is a sustained chord of spice and sweetness, each note persisting in harmonious balance.
