Light malt | Oak | Bold lush dark fruits | Wafts of dark chocolate | Hints of ethanol | Clear influence from the sherry butt


Dry oak | Dark fruits | White peppercorn | Toasted sugar | Berries | Proof shines through


Malted grain | Dry oak | Faint berries | Light leather | Dry peppercorn | Drier mellowed notes to end on a pillow of heat


To create this unique single malt, Cedar Ridge first aged their whiskey for 2 years in new American oak barrels, followed by finishing the whiskey for an additional two years in a 500-liter Sherry butt that was imported from Jerez, Spain. It’s this two year finishing step that clearly influenced the whiskey’s direction. This malt is full of lush dark fruits that are instantly noticeable the moment you lift the glass and result in a fantastic opening nose. While the rest of the sip still highlights the sherry influence, more drier notes start to shine through and it doesn’t live up to the bold opening the nose promises. The  result is a tempering down of the overall sip. Lost Lantern 2021 Single Cask #1: Cedar Ridge is a unique malt that will please American malt drinkers who are looking for a unique barrel finished whiskey.
