Potters Distilling Co 11 Yr (Cadenheads) Review

Potters 11 200ml Cask End bottles from Cadenheads are usually always a bit interesting and this is definitely "interesting" it's a Potters Distilling Co 11 year old, which has caused a bit of disagreement as to where it is almongst some whisky fans.

From what i know Potters was in British Columbia but i really can't remember off hand. It's been a while since I tasted this and I've been sitting on the notes since as although i wouldn't describe it as awful it certainly wasn't to my taste!

The Indian corn comes through as american cream soda type notes but it's just filled with so much spice and acetone that it's not the most pleasant drinking whisky i've ever had, but then we have to try these things.

Tasting Notes & Details


theres a really strong vanilla note in here that reminds me of american cream soda along with a strong note of acetone, beyond that i get nothing, the acetone is just too overpowering.


the palate is very woody and full of acetone and only very light pine cones breaking through, even with water


the finish is spicy, harsh
