Lohin McKinnon Single Malt
Lohin McKinnon // British Columbia, Canada
The Central City Brewery’s master brewer Gary Lohin and master distiller Stuart McKinnon tag teamed to produce this single malt Canadian whisky. Gary takes care of producing a flavorful fermentation then passes it to Stuart who distills a full-bodied distillate. This single malt has been aged for three years in ex-bourbon barrels then bottled at 43%. Exclusive to Canada.

"The nose doesn’t waste any time. Vanilla, toffee and honey are merged with a spiced fragrant maltiness. Floral fresh linens transition the nose to a palate that’s governed by barley cereals, citrus fruit and gentle oak. The light buttery texture bursts with mild spice with a welcome tartness and tang in the finish. This is well-constructed single malt. "
