Dry Fly Port Barrel Finish Wheat Whiskey

Dry Fly Port Barrel Finish Wheat Whiskey

$80.00

Dry Fly Port Finish Wheat Whiskey is the same whiskey as our Washington Wheat, aged 3+ years in American Oak and then moved to a Port Wine barrel for an average of 6-12 months. It has a soft port finish and a slightly higher tannin level from the port barrel.

3 year old wheat whiskey from Washington’s Dry Fly Distilling, which has been finished in barrels which previously held a fortified wine (which would be called Port in America, though cannot be titled as such here in the EU). The creamy mouthfeel carries the wine-like sweetness handsomely.

Dry Fly Wheat Whiskey is made at the eponymous distillery in Spokane in a 450-litre pot still. Finished in barrels that used to hold Huckleberry Port from Townshend winery, this is a fruity style of whiskey.

Dry Fly Whiskey was inspired by a love for fly-fishing and the Pacific Northwest. Local ingredients are sourced from local sustainable farms allowing Dry Fly distilling to create a true farm to bottle experience. The Dry Fly Washington Wheat Whiskey is made from 100% local soft white wheat. This spirit is distilled twice then aged a minimum of three years in a #3 char 53-gallon American Oak barrel. The sprit is then moved to a blueberry port wine barrel and rested for the next 6 – 12 months.

Nose:

The nose is rich and sweet. Notes of vanilla and cinnamon are initially present. As the spirit rests in the glass, a tangerine-like citrus and blueberry notes begin to emerge.

Palate:

The first sip is somewhat thin and is accompanied by a pepper-like spice. A subtle mouth drying effect is present in addition to an odd sour note. The second sip coats the tongue with a tingling spicy sensation. A burnt orange zest note is present. The third sip concentrates in the back palate. Notes of oak and citrus are most prominent.

Finish:

The finish is long and spicy. Faint hints of butterscotch are accompanied by allspice, nutmeg, and orange zest.
