Getting your hands on a bottle of this whisky used to require a road trip to Taiwan. It’s now finding its way onto North American shelves starting with western Canada, where the whisky was born. The name was inspired by the rugged yet graceful Canadian Rocky Mountains. The whisky’s water source is also from the mountain’s glacial waters.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky has its act together. A pool of crisscrossing flavors flow to the nose. From floral spring blossoms, like cherry and lilac, to mouth-watering vanilla and butterscotch balanced with fresh-cut oak. Subtle sweet and sour spice is accented with a quick sear of pepper. A palate cleansing citrus pith invites the next sip. The subtle elegance of this whisky shouldn’t be mistaken for lacking complexity. It’s brimming with a layered refinement that soars into the whisky stratosphere. "
