Released in 2016, Virginia Black is a result of the collaboration between Brent Hocking (creator of DeLeón Tequila), and an actor-turned-rapper you might have heard of, he goes by the name Drake. This American whiskey consists of a blend of two, three, and four-year old bourbons with a high-rye content sourced from MGP. Well dressed and dapper in a fine suit of a glass bottle inspired from the art deco-era of the 1920s, it is bottled at 40% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"The nose presents a vanilla smoked profile with a dollop of caramel. There's some praline tones on the nose as well and maybe some caramel-covered popcorn. Sweet on the tongue, the whiskey presents much of the same on the taste as the nose. The finish shows more sweet smoke and a touch of cinnamon, but is overall pleasant and easy to drink."
