Innis & Gunn Special Limited Edition BeersFor some reason the start of this post seems to have been corrupted – so I’ll try to remember what I originally wrote.

Many thanks to Nicky Hall-Thompson at R&R Teamwork for sending me a couple of samples from Innis & Gunn.  Canadian Cask (7.1%) – I’m afraid that this is only available in Canada, so unless you are travelling there (or you speak very nicely to Nicky) you won’t be able to try it.  It is a special brew inspired by Canada and celebrates the fact that in 2008, Innis & Gunn Original Oak Aged Beer (6.6%) became the number one UK beer in Canada.  The brewery acquired a  number of antique Canadian whisky casks, many of which had been holding Canadian whisky for up to 50 years – the beer matures in these casks and takes on the flavours from them – apparently these flavours include peat, rye, honey and vanilla – quite a combination!  I’m looking forward to trying this beer.
I’m also looking forward to trying the Rum Cask Finish Oak Aged Beer (7.4%).  This has been on sale since the beginning of June, and you should be able to get it at Sainsbury’s and other supermarkets.  This beer spends 107 days maturing in oak barrels, much of that time is spent in barrels previously used to hold rum – and I can imagine that it will have the rich, spicy, fruity taste that the marketing blurb claims.
Once again, thanks to the folks at R&R for sending me the samples.  They will not go to waste!
