Description

Colkegan Cask Strength Single Malt, a formidable rendition from Santa Fe Spirits, emerges at an impressive 118 proof, delivering an intensified flavor experience that boldly accentuates barrel notes of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and baking spices. This expression is a testament to Santa Fe Spirits' dedication to pushing the boundaries of flavor, creating a whiskey that stands as a beacon of craftsmanship and innovation.

Recognized by the Fall 2018 Whisky Advocate with a score of 90, hailed as "a truly compelling American single malt," and receiving another commendable score of 90 in the Spring 2022 Whisky Advocate, Colkegan Cask Strength continues to captivate enthusiasts with its depth and complexity.

This exceptional whiskey is a limited release, bottled only from single barrels, ensuring that each bottle holds a distinctive character that adds to its allure. Colkegan Cask Strength Single Malt stands as a pinnacle of American single malt craftsmanship, inviting aficionados to savor its bold and unbridled spirit.

TASTING NOTES

Eye
Golden straw. Barely-there rims and small teardrops.

Nose
The single malt is a bit stronger, with zero proof or oak power. Fermenting apples, like cider. Sweet with a gentle baking spice backbone. Just-turning caramel.

Palate
The mesquite joins the party after being mostly absent on the nose. Proof, pepper, and oak all hit at once, too, exploding on the palate. It’s note smoky, it’s spicy and woody and stone fruit heavy. Candied ginger opens up alongside licorice spice drops. Mouthfeel is creamy, like a peppery apple custard that cuts across the tongue. Cinnamon spice drops also pop in.

Finish
Medium-length and coating, returning to the fruity character with a hint of the woodsmoke on the end.

Overall
It’s not a Scottish single malt, that’s for sure, and it doesn’t try to be. The mesquite is more powerful than in the apple brandy finished version, but stronger than in the Orange Label. Fruity and custardy, barely a hint of proof until the palate explodes.
