overall

Vosges refers to French oak, originating from the Quercus Petraea species which has a looser wood grain than the more common Quercus Robur species, allowing additional flavor to be imparted more quickly. Heaven’s Door uses cigar barrels for the finishing process, which results in faster evaporation than standard 53 gallon barrels. All of this is worth it, as the resulting flavor profile is very good, highlighting both the high rye composition and bringing a balance of sweet notes into the mix.

The sample used for this review was provided at no cost courtesy of its respective company. We thank them for allowing us to review it with no strings attached.
