I just had my first, and certainly not my last, glen cairn of the double barreled single malt. Wow – a rush of blackberries on first scent, then the bourbon barrel influences come up. Beautifully balanced. All the notes are getting along so well. Even at 50% ABV (Thank You), the alcohol, to me, isn’t dominant in the delivery of the notes. As I mentioned in my tweet, yours was my first entry in my Connoisseur’s Journal from La Maison du Whisky. (Sometimes you have to go old school). Also, I’m doing a private whisky tasting tomorrow, a mystery one no less, and yours is one of the five I’m using. Congratulations on a remarkable Canadian single malt. And the results of the tasting? The guests were “Amazed, impressed, and delighted. Thank you for raising the bar

Oh Canada! If you haven’t cottoned on to what’s happening here, now is the time.

It’s a delight to drink and makes you want more.

If we tasted this without knowing it was a Canadian single malt, we’d likely guess it was a Highland Scotch. Very nice malt.

— Toronto Whisky Society

It is one of those whiskies that just got better and better the more you sipped.

— Carissa Hickling, Whisky Lady

Defies my expectations for a newer craft single malt distiller out of Canada.

— Josh Peters, The Whisky Jug

Frankly I was blown away that I was about to give such a young whisky such a great note… you should be watching Shelter Point like a hawk.

— TOModera, Toronto Whisky Society

A profile all its own, one you wouldn’t mistake for Scotch or American single malt, but recalling good things from both, and very tasty in its own right.

Another world-class single malt made right here in Canada.

It may in fact be my favourite whisky of the whole calendar so far.  Shelter Point, I’m coming over.

— Peter Vetsch, Pop and Pour

More than a nice discovery, I think I found a new regular bottle in my collection!

— Dominic Drapeau, Facebook

I believe that this is the best single malt whisky in Canada!

Beautiful and amazing both the Distillery and the product.

— Adrian King, Facebook

Great product, great flavour whisky. Field to flask all ingredients off the farm, 100 mile diet just got better.

— Norm McGregor, Facebook

Is there a higher rating than excellent?… The place is beautiful and you will learn so much about the art of whisky making and the influence nature has on the product.

WOW!  We visited your distillery before you were able to release your single malt whisky.  We did get a sample of the spirits in the tank and thought “Wow!” then.  Wow!  We finally found a bottle of your whisky here in Edmonton. Tried it tonight. Wow!  It was well worth the wait. Absolutely delicious. Thank you for existing.
