Lost Lantern Whiskey

2021 Single Cask #1: Cedar Ridge

Great Single Malt From The Great Plains

Sherried single malts have been beloved for well over a hundred years. But this is probably the first one you’ve ever seen from Iowa. We’ll be honest: it’s the first one we saw from Iowa too.

Part of what we love about Lost Lantern is finding whiskies that truly surprise and astonish us. When we went to Cedar Ridge on a cold and windy March day, we knew we’d find great bourbon, and we did (in fact, our very first bourbon single cask came from Cedar Ridge). We didn’t know we’d also fall in love with a single malt… but once we did, we were dying to shout it from the rooftops.

This single malt was aged for 2 years in new American oak, then finished for two years in a 500-liter Sherry butt imported from Jerez, Spain. This is a classic sherried single malt, with rich, golden fruit flavors on top of a clean, honeyed malt base. We heard later that this particular cask had long been a favorite of the distillation team, until we spirited it away to be bottled.

You may never have tried Iowa single malt before, or any Iowa whiskey, for that matter. But if you love Sherry, this cask will make you wonder what took you so long.
