Virginia Distillery Co.’s website provides a wealth of information about this release and an example for every other distillery out there to strive for. As noted, a total of 37 used casks were used for this batch, which included 21 bourbon, 10 cuvée, and 6 sherry casks making for a total of 2,554 gallons of whiskey. This resulted in a final blend of approximately 50% ex-bourbon casks, 25% ex-cuvée casks, and 25% ex-sherry casks. Like the light color of this whiskey, the flavor profile is light and airy, which lends itself to sweeter and more floral and fruity notes. I enjoyed this whiskey and it stands out among most on my shelf, but I would love to taste it with more time in the barrel. Based on this release Virginia Distillery Co. is definitely on my radar as a distillery to watch.
