An alluring almond-like Amber color. Standing out from all others on shelf. After ten years of aging, the whiskey is finished in fine grain French oak barrels for 30 days. These barrels were air dried outdoors for two or more years allowing the barrels to release more vanillin and reduces tannic astringency. French Oak is appreciated for its complexity and undeniable quality. On the nose you’ll find green apple, fresh mint, vanilla, new leather, marigold and floral and earthy notes. You find similar notes on the palate with a delightfully unique taste hitting mid-palate due to the toasting technique of the French Oak barrel, of toasted vanilla, chestnut, tobacco and leather with a sustaining dry finish.
