Attention attention!!! Last year marked the first year for Innis & Gunn’s special Canadian Cask release. This is a beer specifically brewed with rye malts and aged in rye barrels rather than bourbon barrels to celebrate Canada Day. This could be because Canada is the second largest importer of Innis & Gunn in the world!
Last year Innis graced us with a unique and sweetly smooth Innis & Gunn with a touch of maple on the back. This new Canadian Cask has been brewed with more malted rye and is aged in better barrels for 54 days rather than 71 diving it a rich and deep caramel and toffee rye flavor with greater freshness and ripe aroma. I was lucky enough to get a bottle of this from my good friends at Innis & Gunn before it hit the shelves, so I can tell you with confidence that you need to go get some! My review will be coming shortly.
The LCBO is now distributing it across Ontario, so they are out there – but I would grab some fast; I don’t expect them to last very long!
