From Virginia Distillery Co.
in Lovingston, VHW Port Cask Finished Whisky is made from 100% malted barley, marrying American single malt whisky made on-site in Virginia with aged scotch malt whisky. A focus on finishing in port casks for a minimum of 12 months adds depth and complexity. Batches of VHW Port Cask Finished Whisky incorporate port-style wine casks from Virginia as well as traditional tawny port casks and is finished for a minimum of 12 months. Coppery gold in color, this whisky offers aromas of honeyed fig, walnut, and apple. Barrel smoke mingles with sweetness from the fruit, developing into cocoa and melding into cinnamon and clove on the palate. The finish lingers with hints of caramelized sugar.
