While the standard issue Single Malt and the Apple Brandy Cask Finished Single Malt came in at 46% ABV, today’s whiskey which was bottled at Cask Strength ups the ante to a whopping 59%! Whiskey with a “5” that is just shy of being a whiskey with a “6”. We like that. We like that a lot!
Here’s what Sante Fe Spirits has to say about this whisky on their website:
Colkegan Cask Strength Single Malt is a 118 proof version of Santa Fe Spirits’ traditional mesquite smoked single malt whiskey which exhibits more barrel notes of coffee, chocolate, caramel and baking spices. Bottling whiskey at cask strength is about enhanced flavors and aromas, about stripping the whiskey down to its bones and preserving more of the original flavors of the cask and not diluting any of its essence. Colkegan Cask Strength is bottled only from single barrels and is limited in its release.
