An elegant, balanced, Port-finished combination of Scottish and Virginian Single Malts.

The Blue Ridge Mountains of central Virginia are better known for Moonshine and renegade distilleries. Virginia Distillery Company is changing all that. The late Dr. George G. Moore moved arrived in Virginia from Ireland in 1970 where he raised his family and dreamed of making Whisky. In 2011, that dream become a reality when he founded Virginia Distillery Company with his wife, son, and daughter-in-law — who continue to run the operation. They currently have four Malt Whiskies in their portfolio, with another specially-sourced and aged Single Malt version due in 2020.

Virginia Distilling Port Cask Finished Highland Whisky is actually a blend of two Single Malts — one from Scotland and the other from their Virginia stills. The Scottish spirit arrives fully matured. The Virginia malt is aged one year — but don’t let that single year worry you. The two are married and finished in domestic Port casks for depth and complexity and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV. The net result is elegant and tastes like the Highlands it’s named after.

Bought this as a flyer because I thought the concept was interesting and was very pleasantly surprised by this bottle. Easy sipper with a port finish that really comes through.
