Oregon Highlander is a Scottish Highland style Singlemalt whisky made from Great Western 2-row, Munich, and Crystal 40 malt. Check our batch release notes below for more info.
The bulk of this whisky is 2.5 years old with about 10% being over 3 years old and about 20% being 2 years old. This release spent 6 months in a freshly emptied syrah barrel and has a rich red hue and fruity finish with an aroma of dried fruit, Christmas fruitcake and old books. Our richest Oregon Highlander yet. Only 210 bottles were filled.
The bulk of this release (90%) is one and a half years old with some two year old whisky. It was mostly aged in new 10 & 15 gallon Barrel Mill char #3 & #4 barrels. A smaller percentage was finished in wine barrels giving this whisky darker gold/brown buds and a slightly more vanilla, new oak flavor. The nose has the biscuit, cereal aroma that comes from malted whisky versus bourbon/corn whiskey. This heavier oak flavor will appeal to bourbon drinkers that prefer sweeter whiskey with vanilla notes. As compared to 16-1 this release is more of an American style Single Malt. 16 cases released. Bottled at 43% or 86 proof. 16 cases released.
The bulk of this release (65%) is right at a year old. The remainder is 20% 6+ months and 15% is 4-5 months old. It has all been in a plethora of new and used heavy char 5 & 10 gallon American Oak barrels and most of it was finished in 15 gallon French Oak, former wine barrels. The blend of barrels and times spent in each barrel is almost too complicated to list. But the fun part is doing the blending trials and putting together the final blend. It is bottled at 45% or 90 proof. 15 cases released.
