Collingwood Town Collection Double Barrel
Collingwood // Ontario, Canada
This double-barrel Canadian whisky is made from a high-rye mash bill that was aged in white oak barrels then transferred to new heavily-toasted white oak barrels for an unspecified amount of time. The whisky then follows Collingwood’s trademark finishing process where it rests is stainless steel marrying vats with toasted Maplewood staves. A percentage of the sales goes to restoring the town of Collingwood’s Nottawasaga Lighthouse, which was struck by lightning in 2004.

"The imaginative nose is rich with floral honey, roses, ripe cherry, chocolate-mint and off-the-charts wood. It’s a chocolate cherry bolt on the palate with some intricate sour spice characters. These are balanced with oak and rye spices zapping this whisky into a perfect storm of flavors. The wood sets up a long tangy finish. "
