Review #679 – Blind in the Dump Miniseries: Forty Creek Copper Pot Whisky

Review #679 | /r/WorldWhisky Review #22 – Forty Creek Copper Pot Whisky

The Schtick: This comes from a 4-way blind send courtesy of /u/playingwithfire. He said he’s sent me 4 samples (Crown Hand Select, Crown Apple, Mystery, Mystery Rum – all blind), most of them garbage, and let me go from there. I took notes and here they are. I did the tasting and got the reveals on the Whiskey Network Discord Server and then wrote up the pertinent details for posting the review. Enjoy!


Distiller: Forty Creek

Bottler: Forty Creek

ABV: 43% ABV

Age: NAS

Source: Sample


Nose: Sweet maple, honey, vanilla, mocha. Overall, sweet but muted.

Taste: Light mouthfeel, no heat. Faint sugar. Not as sweet as the Apple. Definitely sweet though. Salted caramel, cocoa, mocha. Really strange.

Finish: Short, lots of cocoa, maple, salted caramel, toffee and vanilla. Sweet finish.

Overall: I don’t really know what this is. I think it could be Crown Salted Caramel, but this isn’t as cloying or sweet as the Apple, so that leads me to think not. Guessing it’s a whiskey with some added sweetness.

Reveal: This is Forty Creek Copper Pot Whisky. Interesting. Definitely sweetened, or it feels like it. Definitely sort of gross. May be ok in a cocktail, though.

Thanks for reading!
