Lohin McKinnon Single Malt Canadian Whisky
About the Brand
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.
DISTILLED IN CANADA AND AGED IN BARRELS FOR AT LEAST THREE YEARS. OFTEN, BUT NOT ALWAYS, CANADIAN WHISKIES ARE BLENDS OF CORN, BARLEY AND RYE WHICH ARE DISTILLED AND MATURED SEPARATELY.
Lohin McKinnon Single Malt matured in premium oak barrels, this smooth and refined small batch Whisky is made from the finest Canadian Malted Barley and Pure B.C. water. The aroma is rich with darker fruity notes like cherry or grape, subtle honey, vanilla, and pleasantly woody. The golden liquid sits on the palate with a touch of green apple skins, buttery notes, woody and soft textured mouthfeel and the finish is medium length, fruity, and slightly drying at the end. Best enjoyed with a splash of cold filtered water to release the full flavor of this hand crafted gem.
For the nose Vanilla, toffee and honey combined 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.
