Amontillado? I have my doubts...
The classic tale told by Edgar Allen Poe of deception and is resurrected by this intricately designed whiskey. Using the coveted Amontillado Spanish sherry casks that spent decades aging the finest fortified wines, we have emboldened our whiskey with a most intriguing and beguiling of flavors and depth.
The Cask of Amontillado pays homage to the environments of the deep dark cellars where Fortunato was deceived.
This whiskey takes 12-yr old Light Whiskey and Kentucky corn whiskey, devilishly blended together to embody Poe's story, delivering a killer character that is reminiscent of that cool, dark, damp crypt rich with earthy, fruit and semi-sweet tones and dark fruit finish that is to die for.
Each bottle features beautiful hand-drawn original artwork by Joshua Zingerman.
