This exceptional malt was first matured for 8 years and 6 months in American oak ex-Bourbon barrels before undergoing additional maturation in casks made of Chinquapin Oak (Quercus Muehlenbergii) for approx. 18 months. Chinquapin Oak is sourced from the Northern Ozark region in Missouri, and once constructed, the casks were air dried for almost four years, then toasted to medium level before hosting the spirit. The result is a complex, zesty malt bursting with runny honey, sweet cinnamon and orange peel.
