matersons 12 year old wheat

Alc. 50%

Nose:

Sweet toffee and smooth grain. Dusty, old linen closet, with sweet grape wine and pastel candies. Egg nog and Christmas spices. Soft on the nose.

Palate:

Egg nog, nutmeg, sweet golden plums, sultana raisins make for a delightful entry and end on oaky dry, but very smooth finish that tastes like orange soda. Creamy texture and at 50%abv, you wouldn’t know it. Molasses and cola keep the bass notes. Wonderful sip.

Overall: 91

outstanding.

Please note:

This was distilled and aged at the Alberta distillers plant, which was later bottled by an American wine company called 35 maple street, which is a subsidiary of the other guys wine company. Sourced, sent and bottled by an american company, this was a one off project along with mastersons barley. We will likely never see these bottles again.

After a heist in which the majority of these bottles were stolen in a warehouse robbery, even fewer ever made it to the shelf. This bottle originally sold for 80$ in the lcbo and when it failed to leave the shelf, it dropped quickly to 50$, when it was snatched up by lucky consumers.

This is a rare chance to try a 100% straight wheat whisky aged solely in virgin barrels.
