Q: Why Madeira? What will the whiskey taste like?

A: Wes Henderson and his sons Kyle and Andrew visited the island of Madeira in 2015 and sampled more than 30 Madeira wine varieties before selecting the perfect barrels for this special release. Madeira wine’s aging process goes back centuries and embodies true craftsmanship. The finishing process in Madeira barrels lends both the dryness of a good sherry and the richness of tawny port to this release. With tasting notes of toasted oak, grass, smoke, leather, chocolate and dried cherries, this is a unique whiskey that’s worthy of our Cellar Collection and your top shelf.
