Batch No. 3 American Single Malt whiskey is made from the same grain bill as the prior releases. Batch No. 3 has been aged for a minimum of 5 years in new american oak and ex-bourbon barrels and finished in port wine casks.
The port-wine cask and the longer aging period have created a truly complete whiskey to add to our lineup. The effects of the port barrels display a smooth balanced mouthfeel with notes of dried dark fruits, cocoa nib, and toasted pecan. This is not your port forward whiskey. The true beauty of this whiskey is found in a happy medium of influence from the various casks used while not overshadowing the amazing product we started with.
Tasting Notes: Dried Cracklin oat bran cereal, leather, and pecans on the nose. There are some bright fruit notes like a dried cherry or cranberries. The taste moves from initial sweetness to spice and cigar tobacco. It finishes with dark chocolate and black pepper.
