Corby Whisky: Sip And Savour
Corby’s premium whisky Lot No. 40 Dark Oak wins Premium Whisky of the Year.
You don’t have to be a whisky drinker to enjoy the libation because sometimes, given the occasion, circumstance or surroundings, nothing is better than a glass of smooth, fine, premium whisky. If you enjoy this special treat, you might consider selecting Corby Spirit and Wine’s premium whisky Lot No. 40 Dark Oak. Recently named a Premium Whisky of the Year and given an Award of Excellence, Line Extension at the 2023 Canadian Whisky Awards. For connoisseurs, Lot 40 Dark Oak is a bigger, bolder version of Lot 40 rye whisky. Maintaining the core essence of Lot 40 — 100 per cent rye, distilled in a pot still, aged in new American oak barrels – Dark Oak is finished in a second new oak barrel, this time heavily charred. This finishing in a new-char No. 4 barrel adds even more notes and colour from the barrel, resulting in a bolder and more intense rye whisky.
For those who are not connoisseurs — it is simply delicious and the epitome of a smooth, good-tasting whisky. This is your go-to choice for whisky.
Lot No. 40 Dark Oak was also awarded a gold medal, while Lot No. 40 100 per cent Pot Still Rye Whisky was awarded a silver medal alongside the J.P. Wiser’s brand Deluxe, 10-year-old, 15-year- old and 18-year-old offerings.
