overall

The company announced Single Cask #9 as part of their Spring 2021 release with this particular cask producing a scant 133 bottles. The resulting whiskey delivers an enjoyable sip that drinks below its proof. The nose is full of untraditional flavors, specifically a distinct scent of curry powder, that may sound weird, but plays nicely with the other scents surrounding it. This is in contrast with the rest of the sip which is slightly more traditional, focusing on spice and sweetness. The only fault is the finish, which relies too heavily on its more one-dimensional rye spice characteristic and results in an incredibly lingering heat. Overall, Lost Lantern Single Cask #9 will please most whiskey drinkers, especially those who are chasing a more unique rye.
