McCarthy's Oregon Whiskey 6 YEAR SINGLE MALT CASK SINGLE BARREL Select By Seven Grand Whiskey Bar 116.5 Proof
A Cask Exclusive single barrel, McCarthy’s 6-year Oregon Single Malt. This single barrel was bottled at cask strength, made from 100% peated malt barley from Port Ellen. All six years were spent in garryana oak. The oak itself was air dried for three years previous to its use as a barrel. The whiskey was distilled on a single distillation pass, non-chill filtered and bottled at Clear Creek Distillery in Hood River, Oregon. This barrel was picked because it reminded me of the first time I tried McCarthy. Once again my eyes got wide, and my mouth began to salivate. I could sense salt water in the Bay air, bacon sizzling in my oven and distant peat bogs in the marshy countryside.
