Popularized by Scotch Whiskey distillers, finishing whiskies in used Sherry casks allows the delicate characteristics of past occupying products to mingle and marry with the smooth and bold characters of Doc Swinson’s Straight Bourbons altering the bourbon to create a completely new experience for the bon vivant at heart. Often we find the sherry casks adds nuttiness, sweetness, and an irresistible shade of ruby to the bourbon profile.
I know we’ve convinced you that we like whiskey, or at least I hope we have at this point! We also happen to really appreciate rums. For those nice travels to the sunny Caribbean, we tend to enjoy a bottle of local rum on the beach. This gave birth to a natural companionship where sweet meets spice, opposites attract in all the right ways. We take our Straight Rye Whiskey with complex spices and lock it away in a cask that was home to some pretty wild Caribbean rums, allowing them to work out their differences.
We like whiskey and when we meet the cask that takes us back, warms us from the inside out, and refuses to allow us to put the glass down, we bottle it! Why change something that is perfect the way it is? We want to celebrate these rare finds and let you experience the same moment we had in the rick houses, sometimes even at cask strength.
