Spectrum was aged in ex-bourbon casks for three years before the real journey begins. Five Frankenstein casks were coopered using staves from new American oak, new Spanish oak, new French oak, along with staves from ex-Pedro Ximénez and ex-Oloroso sherry casks. The whisky was then aged for an additional three and a half years in this spectrum of wood to produce 1,000 bottles.

"Chocolate-covered raisins, red wine, rum sugars, and Can’t-get-enough-of-that Sugar-Crisp-Cereal aromas slam the nose. Spectrum fires on all cylinders exploding with flavor. Sweet figs, bitter walnut skins, salted caramels, slight oak tannins, leather, and wet wood. The finish dips into Cognac territory where sweetened nuts and a little mulled wine enter the mix. Exceptionally rich and original."
