The Canadian release of Pike Creek is a 10 year old rye whisky aged in white oak barrels and finished in port pipes (specifically for the US Market). This Pike Creek expression takes that same 10 year old rye whisky, jacks up the ABV to 42% and adds a splash of rye to the corn whisky blend. Then, instead of port pipes, it’s finished in rum barrels.
Nose: Complexity of rich brown sugar and vanilla cannonball out of the bottle hitting you square with rum barrel influences. A striking mix of fresh-cut lumber and whisky-saturated wood from the first whiff.
Palate: Old-fashioned cola cubes, cardamom heat and a clear suggestion of honeycomb and toffee drift to vanilla-cola sand blasted with juicy rye grain spice. These flavours are accentuated by a creamy palate laced with molasses.
Finish: Pleasant Port finish - smooth and warm with a zest of citrus.
