Rare Perfection 15 Year Old Whiskey



This lot of Rare Perfection 15-year whiskey is made from a bourbon mash bill of corn, wheat, and malted barley that was distilled in Canada. This whiskey was originally intended to be aged in a cold warehouse for a relatively short period of time, but the distillery was sold off and these barrels were forgotten in the back of the warehouse and left to age in the cold Canadian air. 15 years later these barrels were discovered, dumped, and bottled at barrel proof. Rare Perfection 15 year is a limited release that was bottled at cask strength, 119.7 proof.


Nose: Given time to rest this whiskey softens to reveal some rye spice, plenty of oak, heavy caramel, rich vanilla, and toasted coconut. 
Palate: In the glass it appeared to have an average viscosity, but once it is in your mouth it provides a syrup-like consistency, instantly coating your entire mouth. There is a prominent caramel sweetness, but this is balanced with some burn from the alcohol and a sharp rye spice on the tip of the tongue. Plenty of grain, some smoky, burnt caramel notes, more toasted coconut, and a prominent oak presence. A few drops of water really helped this pour, as the thick viscosity was a bit overpowering.
Finish: The finish is long and thick, super thick! Some water and/or ice really helped. Some heat and rye spice linger, but the finish consisted mostly of toasted grain, more of that smoky burnt caramel, and heavy oak.
