Barrel Finishing Series: Silver Oak Cabernet Cask Finished
Our limited edition finishing series celebrates the union of Tennessee High Malt into a variety of classic finishing casks. Crafted from a combination of unique bourbon mash bills – each containing at least 25% specialty malt - each batch is made to complement the flavor characteristics of the finishing barrel.
For our third finish in the series, our distillers sought out barrels from one of America's most iconic wineries - Silver Oak Cellars. Sourced from the Alexander Valley region of Sonoma’s North Coast, these Cabernet Sauvignon casks highlight the California winemaker’s new world approach - which marries the red fruit & savory notes from the varietal, with the caramel & spice character of toasted American oak.
To highlight and enhance the qualities of these finishing barrels, our distillers selected a range of 5 single malt mash bills, each containing a range of toasted, roasted & caramel malts - including a custom-toasted barley malt developed with our friends at Riverbend Malt House in Asheville, NC. Aged for greater than 4 years, including over 18 months in the Cabernet barrels, the result showcases a dynamic balance between bold flavors of malt, fruit & toasted oak - highlighting the best best of both wine & whiskey.
