This single cask is truly unique, combining the originating grain-forward distillate with a cask of superior quality. Bottling at cask strength allows the whiskey to be displayed in pure form, as Virginia Distillery Company does not chill filter the whisky before bottling. Color is never added, allowing the influence of the cask to be seen through natural color development. Similarly, by not using chill filtration, a richer mouthfeel is able to develop. This cask saw a low temperature of 17 degrees Fahrenheit on December 17, 2018 and a high temperature of 103 degrees Fahrenheit on July 22, 2020.
