Double GoldmSan Francisco World Spirits Competition 2018
"The folks at The Cooper Spirits Co. are experts at sourcing whiskey. The company selects its juice from choice barrels filled by Alberta Distillers Ltd. in the great expanse of our colder neighbor to the north. Some of this whiskey now composes the new Lock Stock and Barrel 18 ($230), an unmistakable choice for those who really, truly love rye whiskey. After all, the mash bill is 100 percent rye—even some of the boldest rye releases reach only 95 percent.
"The whiskey is 109 proof but goes down smoother than expected. It’s intense and fruity with a hint of bitterness, and it bursts with baking spices, black pepper, cantaloupe, ginger, and old leather flavors."
Double distilled from a rare mash bill of 100 percent rye grain, unfiltered then aged in cold weather for 18 years in new charred American oak barrels, full bodied in complex and unified notes of hot buttered rum, gingerbread, dried peach, toasted pecan, ripe honeydew and tobacco leaf.
The Distiller: "This is the third and oldest release thus far of Lock Stock & Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey, following their 13-year-old and 16-year-old bottlings. Like those releases, this bottling is 100% rye whiskey distilled at Canada's Alberta Distillery. It is a "robust cut", unfiltered after aging for 18 years in new, charred American oak. Bottled at 109 proof."
