Bottled at 48% and matured in American Oak ex-Bourbon Barrels then finished in Chinquapin Virgin Oak for 18 months, this exceptional malt gets its complex, zesty flavors from casks made of Chinquapin Oak (Quercus Muehlenbergii) sourced from the Northern Ozark region in Missouri. Chinquapin is a sub species of Quercus Alba and delivers spicy flavors and aromas. Air dried for almost four years, then toasted to medium level these casks give us the perfect balance of spirit and wood character.
