Courage & Conviction Cuvée Cask

$76.99

Size
750ml, bottle

A bold and innovative blend of Kentucky Straight Bourbons, finished in Cognac casks for a touch of French finesse. This unique spirit offers a flavor profile that is both rich and sophisticated, with notes of vanilla, caramel, dried fruit, and spice.

Description

Courage & Conviction Cuvée Cask is a distinctive American Single Malt Whiskey that breaks the mold. Made from 100% malted barley, this whiskey undergoes a minimum of three years of aging, but the magic lies in the casks it matures in. Unlike traditional American Single Malts that use new charred oak barrels, Cuvée Cask utilizes specially selected first-fill European red wine Cuvée casks.

These casks undergo a special STR (Shave, Toast, Re-char) treatment, which revitalizes the wood and unlocks a symphony of flavors. The result is a whiskey that bridges the Atlantic, showcasing both American grain character and European red wine influence.

Taste Notes

Nose

The initial aroma is a delightful surprise. Expect a burst of fresh red fruits like raspberries, cranberries, and orange peel, along with hints of earthy beechwood and a touch of smokiness from the char.

Palate

The first sip reveals a surprisingly thick and dense texture. Earthy notes mingle with coffee and rich brown sugar, while juicy bursts of strawberries and cinnamon tantalize the taste buds.

Finish

Hints of mocha and leather emerge, along with a subtle touch of smoke, leaving a joyful and satisfying conclusion.
