This whisky is made from 100% malted barley which includes whisky sourced from Scotland and the Virginia distillery's own whisky distilled from a malt mash. The finishing casks used here formerly held a Wee Heavy Ale-style beer called "Stage Road". The Virginia brewery who produced it, Three Notch'd Brewing, aged this beer in former Virginia Distilling Co.'s whisky barrels for about 12 months. Once the beer was dumped, the barrels came back to the distillery and was used to finish this whisky. Bottled at 92 proof.

Tasting Notes

"This whisky shows a light straw color and offers a nose combining bright grapefruit and cilantro hops aromas with a base of malty toasted hay and cracked grain. In the mouth bittersweet hops dominate and add an admirable juiciness to the palate that erases whisky’s usually somewhat alcoholic finish and gives a round, rich finish."
