Double Oak Series Whiskey Release Details:
We’re ushering in Autumn with two perfect seasonal finishes – the Armagnac and Cognac Finish American Single Malt Whiskeys.
Cognac and Armagnac are two of the most renowned categories of French brandy. Each has its own unique character, a function of the different grape varietals used, and very different distilling techniques.
Cognacs are double distilled in traditional alembic pot stills, yielding a spirits with a more delicate flavor and a lighter mouthfeel with sweet and lightly fruit notes are matched with gently peppery note; whereas, Armagnacs are single distilled in column stills, giving the resulting distillate a richer, more viscous mouthfeel and a more fruit forward notes of apricot and figs along with licorice.
The freshly emptied French Oak barrels of each lend themselves wonderfully to finishing whiskey, especially single malt.
