Virginia Distillery Co. Courage & Conviction Nancy Fraley Batch Sherry Cask, 46%

virginia distillery co. courage and conviction sherry cask american single malt Even amid the deeper complexity of the sherry cask influence, the tropicality comes through—lemon grove and Spanish melon, set against a backdrop of dried leaves, forest floor, and pine wood. Elegant and honeyed on the palate, with the sherry cask influence showing a winey note, banana flan, apricot, milk chocolate, orange tart, and vanilla cream. A long smooth finish brings forth baking spice, sugared lemon, banana, honeysuckle, caramel, and savory oak. Impressive.

A superbly long finish offers even more flavors—raspberry jam, blueberry muffin, and that marvelous maltiness—with water enhancing it all. Graceful, balanced, and sustained.
