Found North 17 Years Old Cask Strength Rye Whisky Batch 003
Each batch of Found North whisky is a careful selection of casks blended to bring out the best and most distinctive qualities of the chosen whiskies. Every release is unique, but each also builds on previous batches and fits into the unfolding saga of Found North. All our whiskies are non-chill filtered with no coloring or additives. Batch 001 and Batch 002 were released in April 2021 and both received Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Batch 003 is a 5-whisky blend created to accentuate a vibrant, zesty, fruit-forward nose and palate combination rarely seen in rye whisky. The whisky was built around 18-year-old rye aged in ex-tequila barrels with a verdant and floral nose combined with an herbaceous spiciness. We enriched the fruitiness by blending in additional 18-year rye aged in ex-Speyside scotch casks and a surprisingly delicate 21-year-old corn component aged in used American oak. Lastly, we provided a foundation of baking spices and brown sugar using 17-year rye and 25-year corn, both aged in Hungarian oak.

The resulting whisky cascades from high to low, starting with a trove of striking berry notes, citrus, and honeysuckle, dovetailing gracefully into a silky, buttery mid-palate, before settling into its lengthy rye undertones that provide a resounding, deep, spicy finish. Each sip tastes like someone baked an apple crisp right onto your palate, showing robust cinnamon and a lingering gingerbread finish that mingles with gentle tannins.
