Distilling Notes

This whiskey started out in new, charred American oak barrels that provide the robust caramel and vanilla notes which balance the spiciness of the rye.  After this initial aging, the whiskey is transferred into freshly emptied American “Port” wine casks from our own winery – Mazza Vineyards.  Because the “Port” casks came from our own winery, they were filled with whiskey within 24 hours of the wine being removed.  This ensures the freshness of the barrels, which provides the maximum flavor and aroma impact.  The longer aging in these “Port” casks gives the whiskey a deeper, more ruby color and rich flavors and aromas of red wine, dark fruit and chocolate.
