Batch 005 is formed around an 8 year old wheat component aged exclusively in new American oak, one of the most marvelous whiskies we have ever worked with. Its vibrance and texture were astounding, resonating with a particular sweet butter note reminiscent of cookie dough. It had the sugary, oily mouthfeel of shortbread fresh out of the oven, caked with distinct minty, tobacco spice. We paired it with a 21 year old corn component aged in ex-bourbon and then transferred into new American oak for 8 plus years. The corn did not just compliment the wheat. It empowered it. The old corn provided a deep viscous foundation which enlivened the mouthfeel further, like putting cinnamon and sugar on buttered toast. At 73% 21 year old corn and 27% 8 year old wheat, Batch 005 is our version of a full-bodied, elegant Canadian wheater.

Found North Whisky
Our goal is to make whisky so delicious and resonant that it shines a light on northern whisky-making. We blend Canadian whisky because its entire purpose from distillation through maturation is to produce quality components for the blender. As blenders, we have access to a diverse range of old, well-made whiskies from which we can further mature and blend the whisky that we want to drink right now.
Blending defines Canadian whisky—yet, unlike many large Canadian whisky brands, our goal isn’t to make a smooth and easy-drinking product for the mass market. We’re inspired by rich, complex, and tongue-tingling whiskies that quicken the senses and enliven the taste buds. We don’t use coloring or additives and we release non-chill filtered batches at cask strength.
With every batch we create, our bond with Canadian whisky grows stronger and our senses sharper. In blending, we are meticulous. We fret about single percentage points, because we believe the quality of Found North can inspire a new renaissance of Canadian enthusiasm.
The nose on Batch 005 is like stepping in from the cold into a warm french bakery, presenting the sweet, nutty aroma of freshly caramelized dark golden brown sugar. There is the lovely creamy tang of Irish butter, mingled with peppermint and sliced pear drizzled with honey. The palate is lively, dancing from buttercream to rock candy to graham cracker. The finish is long and lingering, presenting a gentle blend of crispy nutmeg and earth tones of tobacco, mint and a pine needle forest bed.
