Bearface is branching out from the success of their Triple Oak whisky. The One Eleven Series shakes up Canada’s infamous 9.09% rule by blending a minimum of 2-year-old mezcal made by Maestro Mescalero Pedro Hernández with a single grain four-year-old Canadian whisky. The whisky is aged in American ex-bourbon casks then finished in virgin French oak. Batch number 1 is available in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
"A firm Canadian whisky backbone is accented with agave syrup and traces of smoky bacon. Floral and orange citrus tones lift from the smoke with polite peppery Canadian flavors and traditional vanilla-soaked baking spices. The rich and sweet dried fruit palate dries quickly giving the whisky soft grassy notes blended with warm mezcal tones. Rich in texture, the smoky tones blend with a burst of citrus zest. This is a very cocktail friendly whisky and a terrific sipper for the adventurous."
