A Highland-style Whisky blend that underscores tart apple notes.

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.

Cider Cask Finished Highland Whisky was the second product release from Virginia Distilling Company. There are a few Hard Cider makers in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and for this release they have contracted with two of them — Potter’s Craft Cider and Buskey Cider — to acquire their used Cider barrels to finish their blend of Scottish and Virginia Single Whiskies. But since Highland-style Malt Whisky lends itself to apple and pear flavors naturally, the use of the Cider casks does not so much alter the flavor profile as it emphasizes that aspect of the natural character.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavour. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

Ratings & Reviews
Sam
Sam,
Not sure about the low reviews but this is one of my favorites recently. It’s autumnal flavor profile makes it an easy sipping whisky and certainly unique and flavorful. I’m not sure I’d recommend it to someone who is a heavy scotch drinker but ore for the adventurous bourbon drinker looking to step outside the box for a unique and tasty glass.
