Review: Cadenhead's World of Whiskies Potter's Distilling Co. 24 Year Old / by Jason Hambrey

24 yrs; ex-bourbon casks
100% Corn
Producer Potter's Distilling Co. (Kelowna, BC)

This whisky was matured in a bourbon barrel and is a fine example of some solid old Canadian corn whisky, as we’ve seen in Highwood products. This whisky was from a single cask, aged 24 years, purchased originally from the Potter’s Whisky Broker. The bottle comes in at cask strength and was released in February of 2014 – only 126 bottles were released.

  • Bottling Date: 2014

Dry, with maple, oak, and rich, rich grain and vanilla. Beautiful – there is a balance of sweetness, oak, and grain. It is rich and dry on the palate as well. The finish is slightly sour, peppery, and oily with some of the vanilla and oak poking through. This is fabulous stuff – deep, rich, with a diverse profile.

Highly Recommended (48% of all whiskies I’ve reviewed to date get this recommendation or higher).

Value: Low. $167 CAD is rather pricy!
