Pendleton Directors' Reserve Blended Canadian Whisky 20 year old
Inside each bottle of Directors' Reserve is a story. One that embodies the lore and legacy of the Pendleton Round-Up - an iconic symbol of rodeo heritage. Aged for twenty years, it's clear the wait was worth it from the very first sip. Pure, glacier-fed spring water from Oregon's Mt. Hood allows the unadorned, warm notes of oak, cinnamon and rye to shine through. A little water or an ice cube opens up orange spice, vanilla and caramel, followed by a mature and mellow finish. An exceptional whisky that deserves to be showcased, the bottle is wrapped in a leather sleeve with tooling crafted by third-generation saddle maker Randy Severe, whose family has made custom saddles for nearly 70 years. Enjoy neat to truly savor the inextinguishable soul of the American West. With Directors' Reserve, age has never looked or tasted better.
