Cider Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky is a culmination of Old World and New World whisky making, showcasing 100% malted barley whisky made on-site in Virginia married with whisky from Scotland and finished in cider casks from Virginia.
With each batch release of Cider Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky, we work with a local Virginia cidery, including Potter’s Craft Cider and Buskey Cider. The whisky finishes in these cider casks for an additional 8 to 20 months.
Notes of vanilla, apple and pear are evident on the nose. On the palate, soft creaminess and sweetness from the malt mingle with caramelized wood sugars from the oak, pairing nicely with a touch of acidity from the cider barrel.
The Cider Cask Finished Virginia-Highland Whisky was awarded a Top 20 Whisky of 2018 from Whisky Advocate. Enjoy neat, with a cube or a splash of water or in your favorite Fall-inspired cocktail.
