LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Collingwood blended premium
Canadian whisky announces the release of Collingwood Rye 21-Year-Old, a
one-time only bottling of 21-year old Canadian rye whisky available in select
markets within the United States and Canada beginning in November.
21 years ago, a small unnamed batch of malted rye whisky identified only as
lot 41-06-91 was crafted at the distillery in Collingwood, Ontario. This
whisky has now become Collingwood Rye 21-Year-Old which has been fermented and
distilled from a unique recipe of 100 percent malted rye and pure spring water
from Ontario's Georgian Bay. Collingwood Rye 21-Year-Old has matured for 21
years in seasoned oak barrels and in its finishing step, this unique Canadian
whisky rests with toasted Maplewood to complete its smooth character.
Collingwood Rye 21-Year-Old is presented at 80 proof with limited quantities
available in Ontario and 16 U.S. markets: Alaska, Arizona, California,
Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, New York,
Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. The suggested retail price
for this 750ml offering is $69.99.
"Collingwood Rye 21-Year-Old is a rare style of Canadian whisky," said Senior
Brand Manager Pedro Berrueco. "This special offering is exceptionally
well-balanced and creates a unique flavor profile due to its toasted Maplewood
finish combined with a 21-year maturation period."
Color: Rich, dark brown.
Aroma: A complex mingling of delicate spice, floral and fruit character subtly
sweetened with hints of caramel and vanilla.
Taste: Citrus and rye spice notes coat the palate followed by hints of soft
oak and grain.
Finish: Long and fruity.
