HYE-LAND Armenian Whiskey, 15 Year Old

15 years old
750ml, 43% ABV

Small Batch, Single Malt Whiskey

Hye-Land is aged for a minimum of 15 years in Armenian Oak casks and brandy-barrel finished. This combination creates a refined spirit with remarkably complex characteristics. Notes of ripened apricots are backed by subtle dryness, with hints of vanilla spice, almonds and tobacco. The finish is long with leather and oak tannins throughout.

Description

Hye-Land is made at Eraskh Winery and Distillery in the Ararat Valley of Armenia. Known more for its wines, brandies, and vodkas, the facility was established in 1967 roughly 80 miles outside the capital city of Yeraskh in the village of Aralez. The Ararat valley is one of the most ancient agricultural regions on Earth, dating back to Noah and the time of the flood, and its flowing wheat fields, sprawling vineyards, and orchards of fruit trees offer an endless bounty of quality produce for Eraskh’s distillation.

While most single malt whiskies are 100% malted barley, HYE-LAND whiskey is made from 100% malted wheat, then aged in Caucasus Mountain oak before being finished in Armenian brandy barrels.
