VHW Port Cask Finished Whisky is a unique and flavorful whiskey that combines American single malt whisky made on-site in Virginia with aged Scotch malt whisky. It's then finished in Port casks for at least 12 months, resulting in a smooth, rich flavor profile with hints of dark fruit and spice.

Description

VHW Port Cask Finished Whisky takes you on a global whisky journey. Crafted with 100% malted barley, it starts with a base of American single malt whisky distilled in Virginia. This is then expertly married with aged Scotch malt whisky, bringing a touch of time-honored tradition. But the magic truly unfolds during the finishing touch. For a minimum of twelve months, this whisky rests in Port casks, both from Virginia and Portugal. These casks, previously used to age fortified wine, imbue the whisky with a rich tapestry of flavor.

The resulting spirit boasts a beautiful coppery gold color, hinting at the treasures within. On the nose, a delightful medley awaits. Imagine honey-dipped figs, toasted walnuts, and crisp green apples, all intertwined with a subtle whisper of smoke. This smoky nuance complements the sweetness of the fruit, creating a captivating intrigue.

The taste buds are treated to a continuation of this delightful dance. The initial sweetness gives way to rich notes of cocoa, like decadent dark chocolate. Hints of cinnamon and clove add a warming spice, while the oak from the casks provides a sturdy foundation. As the whisky lingers on the palate, a touch of caramelized sugar emerges, leaving a pleasant and lasting impression.

VHW Port Cask Finished Whisky is a testament to the art of blending. It brings together American ingenuity, Scottish heritage, and the unique influence of Port casks. The result is a complex and rewarding whisky, perfect for sipping neat and savoring the journey it takes you on.  This award-winning spirit is sure to impress whisky enthusiasts and casual drinkers alike, offering a depth of flavor that transcends borders.
