The Sauternes Cask Finish is a combination of thirty 2012 bourbon barrels married in Sauternes wine casks for five months before bottling. 10,000 bottles will be released worldwide of this limited edition, bottled at 50% abv.
The Sauternes Cask Finish follows a range of wine cask releases over the previous five years (Limited Edition Archive). This latest offering differs in that it was initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels before being transferred into fresh sauternes hogsheads for five months prior to bottling. This finishing period allows the caramel and vanilla influence of bourbon barrels to be accentuated by the buttery sweetness of the sauternes cask.
