At Found North, the brand structures its blends around one component: whisky. When you see “Maturation” on their bottles, it refers to the aging regimen for that component, the keystone in the arch of the whisky. Sometimes it makes up 50% of the blend, and sometimes, it makes up 5% of the blend, but it is always the foundational piece of the whisky. In the case of Batch 008, the brand used a vibrant 18-year-old rye barrel in an ex-Madeira cask. This component makes up 4% of the blend but dominates the profile, releasing blackberry and fig puree on the nose and a wild-grain earth tone on the palate.
The ex-Madeira aged rye was unruly and vivacious, requiring four separate corn components to round out the profile and give the whisky its shockingly creamy texture. To accomplish this, we blended in a 22-year corn component in new wood, a 23-year corn component in new wood, a 23-year corn component in ex-Bourbon, and our favorite, a 26-year corn component in Hungarian oak. Lastly, we used a 19-year Hungarian oak-aged rye to provide Batch 008 with the spicy backbone and texture on the finish.
