The use of fresh, 'virgin' American Oak barrels is one of the key contributors to the overall flavour of Kentucky Bourbons, bold with spice, vanilla and a strong woody influence.
America has seen a considerable growth of craft and small-scale producers, many of which are eschewing the traditional styles, offering a more diverse range of grains, casks and types of whiskey being produced.
American Whiskey — Willett
Willett Pot Still 47%
Bottled in a representation of the copper pot still that gave it birth, Willet's Pot Still whiskey is one of Kentucky's hidden gem's. The Willet style is typically sweet and vanilla'd, with notes of summer fruits, floral-citrus undertones (lemon cake), and a drying woody spice from the virgin American oak casks it is matured in.
