Wayne Gretzky Red Cask (40% abv)


SKU 784318 Categories ,

Weight 2 kg

750 mL

Whisky made the Canadian way – locally sourced grains are individually distilled, matured and blended, then finished in red wine casks from our Wayne Gretzky winery. This process ‘polishes’ the whisky, adding rich oak, vanilla and spice, and balancing all the elements to produce a refined and smooth whisky.

Our Ontario climate has an influence on barrel ageing; high annual temperature fluctuations in a non-temperature-controlled environment drives the whisky deep into the oak during warmer periods and draws it out during cooler periods. The location of the barrel within the rickhouse influences how it ages, depending on temperature, air flow and height within the room. This gives our distiller near infinite options when blending, to create the taste profile selected by Wayne himself.

A bright straw gold colour with a ruby red hue. At first swirl of the glass look for top notes of toasty new oak, almond nuttiness, caramel and vanilla. Then underlying notes appear suggesting nutmeg spice and stone fruit. After adding a touch of water, added notes of sweet spice and dark raisin develop. The mouth-feel is smooth, round and robust, with a touch of woody tannins for structure, along with deep notes of toasted nuts and allspice. The finish is long and lingering with a delicately sweet, smooth texture and flavours of nut and allspice.
