An American single malt whiskey from the Virginia Distillery Co., aged for three years in a combination of ex-bourbon, ex sherry, and French oak ex-wine barrels that have been deconstructed, shaved, and re-charred. Elegant, with the familiar notes of Honey Grahams and juicy raisin complemented and elevated by sweet, dark red berries, vanilla fudge, raw honey, and a delicate earthiness that comes across as wildflowers, wet straw, and old barn floors. The palate is generous with a silky, syrupy mouthfeel that showcases bolder flavors of honey-sweetened black tea, ginger syrup, cinnamon stick, and raspberry candies. The mid-palate sees a bit of buttery scone with mixed berry jam, the malts and barrel-finishing finding exceptional harmony. The finish is long with sweet toffee and almond pastry, accented with just a hint of stone fruit and more fresh-brewed tea, this time with a lemon squeeze. Bottled at 46% abv.
