Canadian Shield Whisky
Domaine Pinnacle // Quebec, Canada
The Easter Townships of Quebec, Canada is home to Domaine Pinnacle, a stone’s throw from Vermont. They’re famous for their award winning apple and ice cider but have recently branched out into spirits including this blended Canadian Whisky. It’s distilled and aged in small batches using 100% natural Canadian ingredients.
CanadianDISTILLED IN CANADA AND AGED IN BARRELS FOR AT LEAST THREE YEARS; OFTEN (BUT NOT ALWAYS) CANADIAN WHISKIES ARE BLENDS OF CORN, BARLEY, AND RYE WHISKIES WHICH WERE DISTILLED AND MATURED SEPARATELY. TRADITIONALLY, CANADIAN WHISKEY IS CALLED “RYE”, ALTHOUGH NO MINIMUM PERCENTAGE OF RYE-GRAIN WHISKY IS REQUIRED IN A BLEND.
"A salvo of everything maple slams the sweet nose. Toffee sugar, toasted campfire marshmallows and coffee caramels setup a creamy texture that’s not at all syrupy. Cereal grains calm the nose’s sweetness as the younger grain characteristics are amplified on the palate. Barrel flavors such as oak and vanilla are muted. Berries and some dried fruits lead into a concise to-the-point finish."
