Celebrating the Holidays with Forty Creek Whisky
Thanks to the folks at Forty Creek Distillery, I've been given the opportunity to sample and enjoy the Barrel Select Whisky and the newest Forty Creek release of Copper Pot.
Forty Creek is a Distillery located in Grimsby, Ontario, Canada. It's a small distillery owned by whisky maker John Hall. I read his bio and he is a former winemaker with over 30 years experience. He now brings his experience to the whisky world. I tend to favour local business especially in food and drinks industry. Help support local business, right?
This past weekend i celebrated a holiday party with friends and family so this was a perfect opportunity to try both bottles of whisky. I would be considered a novice when it comes to the appreciation of whisky. Only until this summer did i get introduced to whisky. I always thought it was too strong of a taste for my tastebuds. Over the past couple of months i have tried many whiskies and have gained an appreciation for whisky. I actually favour my whisky with a single large ice in glass. I personally like to savour the taste this way. That evening I had whisky with snacks such as popcorn and nachos. It's not your typical combination but a great drink to have to celebrate the holidays! I look forward to trying different concoctions of Forty Creek Whisky. That will be next.
Barrel Select Whisky
I tried both but really enjoyed the Copper Pot Whisky. It has a silky flavour for me. I like the mix of ice and Forty Whisky. I like my whisky straight with no hassles.
