This single malt whiskey was aged first in a used Scotch barrel (which had formerly been used for sherry) and then finished in an American white oak wine cask, resulting in a final age statement of two years. Distilled on April 28, 2012, only 200 bottles of this whiskey were released and is sold only at the distillery.

Tasting Notes

"The interplay of sweetness and spice in Double Diamond's single malt whiskey is intriguing. Its heat is matched by a sweet notes of honey and sherry, with a dry chocolatey finish. Tasted blind, one might guess it's a young whiskey from Scotland."
