This unsmoked base is matured in New American White Oak, finished in Tawny Port barrels, then blended with mesquite-smoked American single malt Petites eaux from a used bourbon barrel. Tawny tends to have a nutty, oxidative character and is often enjoyed as an aperitif, different from Port’s usual role as an after-dinner drink. Matured for over two years, this Distiller’s Cut is a perfect blend of unsmoked and mesquite single malts. This release is at cask strength.
On the nose, you may find raisin, oak, and leather. On the palate we get sweet, maple-forward notes, moving into a long and velvety mid-palate. It finishes fruity and light, without a hint of smoke. We recommend serving our Spring 2023 Distiller’s cut neat.
