We just sent out our big email to the customer list and so far have sold about half of our cask! I don't plan on having too many bottles available after the pre-arrival campaign so please do not wait to order one of these if you are on the fence. It will be much like the Clynelish where a bottle might pop up here and there, but nothing guaranteed.
Clear Creek McCarthy's K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Oregon Single Malt Whiskey $89.99 - CLUB PRICE: $79.99 - THIS IS A PREORDER - WHISKEY WILL NOT ARRIVE UNTIL MID TO LATE NOVEMBER. We rely on our relationships and our ingenuity to help locate new barrels and now we’ve tapped one of our most beloved producers, Clear Creek’s Steve McCarthy, for our latest aquisition. Most people associate Oregon’s finest distillery with fruit-based products and rightly so - his mouthwatering Cranberry Liqueur was perhaps the best-selling product we had during our last holiday season. What many do not know, however, is that every Fall he releases a very small amount of an Islay-style, heavily-peated single malt whiskey aged in local Oregon oak. His 100% barley distilled spirit has been legendary among those in the know for more than a decade – even featured in the late Michael Jackson’s indispensable encyclopedia Whiskey. Small allocations are sent out world-wide and they are quickly snatched up by those anxiously awaiting. This will be the first time that Steve McCarthy has ever bottled a single barrel cask strength whiskey for any retailer and it is only for K&L customers! His smoky, salty, iodine and pepper-filled dram is reminiscent of young Laphroaig, but with hints of Ardbeg and Lagavulin. It is truly the long lost child of Islay that was switched at birth and instead grew up on the Oregon coast.
