Railspur No. 3 Spike
750mL – Limited Release
Railspur No. 3 Spike begins with 100% organic BC barley and triple-distilled in our single copper pot still; it is then barrel-aged for just under one year in used 220-litre Bourbon barrels to slowly gain character, complexity and colour. Inspired by the unique spirits indigenous to other countries, Railspur No. 3 Spike is a twist on traditional whiskey. Not having met the mandatory three year mark, this young (almost) “whiskey” is drawn from barrel early to create a mouth-filling assortment of flavours.
Distiller’s Tasting Notes at the still (81% alc./vol.)
On the nose, richness from the Bourbon barrel is revealed flirting with the young barley-based spirit. On the palate, subtle flavours of vanilla, caramel, and cacao bean present themselves, culminating in a lingering graham cracker finish.
