A brilliant blended Canadian whisky, Signal Hill brings together Canadian corn and barley. The former is double-distilled through a two-column still for a lighter, gently sweet spirit, while the latter is pot-distilled, bringing a bready, nuttier depth to the whisky. Signal Hill is partially owned by legendary Canadian actor Dan Aykroyd (who you might know from a little thing called Ghostbusters), and places a focus on transparency. As such, we know that it’s aged in three different cask types: new white oak, first-fill bourbon, and Canadian whisky casks, adding notes of vanilla, dried fruit, and grain sweetness respectively. It’s also bottled in the town of St. John’s (though its exact origins aren’t disclosed) without chill filtering, adding a darker sweetness and oily mouthfeel to the whisky.
Lots of caramel and brown sugar, alongside orange peel, and cayenne pepper and clove warmth.
Oak appears, with buttery corn, dark chocolate, oily walnut, gingersnap biscuits, and red fruits.
Honeycomb sits among dry spices, more root ginger, and corn sweetness.
