2022 FOUNDER’S RESERVE EG HH11
CASK STRENGTH, SINGLE BARREL
Founder’s Reserve EG HH11 is our second cask-strength, single barrel, American single malt whiskey. It is the absolute very last of our Evergreen collection AND – at 7-years-old – our oldest whiskey to date. It’s very rare and, in our opinion, incredibly good.
There are only 120 bottles of this Founder’s Reserve whiskey available for sale. Each is hand-filled and labeled at the Farm and signed by Phil, Wanderback’s Founder and Chief Whiskey Maker.
Journey: Recognizing the special nature of cask HH11, Wanderback’s Founder Phil Downer set it aside. Now 7-years old and 119 proof, this is the absolute very last of the Evergreen distillation run with Westland Distillery in Seattle, WA.
Nose: Dark caramel, baking spices, vanilla, a touch of leather and dried apricot, and rich chocolate.
Palate: Cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove at first with ginger following. Next is toasted oak with caramelized pecan, cocoa powder, leather, and a long and warming finish of baking spices and rich, dark toffee. It’s that comfortable leather chair by the fire. Perfect to settle into on a blustery evening, with a slice of spiced cake in hand.
This dynamic cask-strength, single barrel whiskey highlights the dark and spicy notes from our unique grain bill and seven years spent in an oak cask. Ready the full story here.
