After aging in the Solera, this unique whiskey is then finished in rare French Premier Cru Sauternes wine casks. Sauternes wine, known as the “nectar of the gods”, was prized by both Thomas Jefferson and George Washington in the 18th century. This artisanal whiskey merges the unique terroir of the Hudson Valley with old world European tradition and craftsmanship. This honey amber whiskey displays a complex nose of caramel, vanilla bean, nuts and oak with hints of orange blossom, Meyer lemon zest and honey. Slightly nutty flavors of honey-coated roasted nuts and cinnamon compliment the warm toffee, caramel, and vanilla essences balanced by honeydew melon, citrus and apricot notes opening to a long, clean finish with a lively vanilla, floral oaked finish loaded with honey.
