Whisky Review: Forty Creek Barrel Select

Posted by Arctic Wolf on November 8, 2009

P1010035Forty Creek Whiskies are the brainchildren of Master Distiller John Hall.  John Hall bought the Kittling  Ridge Estates Winery in 19992.  Although primarily a winemaker,  when John discovered a small pot copper still on the estate he couldn’t resist the urge to experiment with another product he loved… whisky.  The wine making heritage combined with the love of whisky has produced what I consider to be a unique Canadian Whisky.  Each batch of whisky is produced upon this small pot copper still, but what makes Forty Creek Whiskies special is that John doesn’t use a single mash for his whisky like other producers.  He makes three separate batches.  A corn mash produces a corn whisky, a barley mash produces a barley whiskey, and a rye mash produces a rye whisky.  Each whisky is aged separately in a variety of oak barrels,  and then blended and finished in sherry casks.  The sherry is actually made right at the winery so Forty Creek can utilize their own sherry casks for the final finishing.
