“A little aeration time coaxes out a mellow vanilla scent. As with its Bourbon counterpart, this rye is aged in American oak casks, then finished in “white-wine seasoned French oak barrels.” The result is a soft feel and honeyed fruit notes spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.”
The advantages of the “Dual Cask” aging method are really noticeable with Rye. We utilize the soft, post-fermentation components of white wine to impart aroma and texture. When these 2-3 year old French oak barrels are emptied, and our Rye goes in for its “Dual Cask” aging period. The result is a rich, round, velvety-smooth Rye Whiskey, with none of the harsh “grassy” character that sometimes can detract from the enjoyment of Rye.
