Description

Description

Forgan Corn Whiskey is produced in the coastal village of Banks in Lancashire from local corn and fermented in Scottish Highland mineral water with sugar and yeast.

This is a bourbon-style whiskey made with 98% corn to a traditional American recipe from Appalachian Mountain region in West Virginia.

The corn is fermented for 3 – 4 weeks before being cleared and then distilled to create 93%ABV “moonshine” or “white-dog”, it’s then watered down to the required strength with the highland mineral water before being barreled in charred virgin American white oak for aging.

All the colour and flavour – typically vanilla and caramel notes and oak – comes from the wood, no flavourings or colours are added, it’s all natural from the wood, there’s some sweetness from the corn which varies from batch to batch.

Strength is around 50%ABV, it does vary by batch.  All bottles are numbered, typically a batch is around 25-30 bottles.

Bottled: 17.06.2018

Cask Type: Old English Oak

Batch Number: 2

Bottle Number: 32 / 32

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Nose: Very subtle aromas of peat smoke tease out candied citrus fruit, with sweet butterscotch, vanilla and baking spice.

Palate: Fruity and sweet, with crisp toffee apple, cereal notes and lemon peel underpinned by a gentle smokiness.

Finish: Citrus zest and subtle hints of spice linger on the finish.
