Always the one to turn the typical on its head, Virgil Kaine Lowcountry Whiskey is selling its one-of-a-kind, twice-aged whiskey this fall: Roundhouse Double Barrel Whiskey.
Back in 2014 during the barrel shortage, Virgil Kaine did what it does best — tackle a problem head-on and adapt. Even though they found themselves in a situation they’d never encountered before, the creators at Virgil Kaine chose to see opportunity in adversity. The result is an American whiskey hailing from a traditional bourbon mash bill, which was aged first in used bourbon barrels for over four years before finally completing its destiny with a second round of finishing in American charred white oak barrels.
The result is a deliciously smooth whiskey with light notes of oak, vanilla, fresh quinces and a faint hint of butterscotch. Bourbon enthusiasts will be delighted to know that this batch’s mash bill is 75 percent corn, 21 percent rye, and 4 percent malted barley. This American whiskey is higher proofed but not overpowering —a true crowd pleaser at 98.6 proof.
