This Cider Cask Finished Whisky is a seasonal release from Virginia Distilling Co. in Nelson County, Virginia. It is made from 100% malted barley which includes whisky sourced from Scotland and the distillery's own whisky distilled from a malt mash. The finishing casks used here are sourced primarily from Potter's Craft Cider and Buskey Cider. The whisky spends an additional 8-20 months in these barrels.

Tasting Notes

"Toasted malt notes combine with juicy orchard fruits to create a complex, weighty nose on this satisfying whiskey. The palate shows more flavors of crisp autumn cider and hints at wisps of smokey malt and dark chocolate. The finish has a slight sulfurous or mineral tone, but this is overall a very tasty and innovative project."
