In Calais amazing Range of Woody Whiskies. A whiskey is "born" as a whiskey only after having stayed at least 3 years in an oak barrel. Wood is therefore a preponderant element in the personality of each whiskey and in its coloring. A whiskey is by definition woody and tannic. the time spent in barrels marks more or less the whiskey as well as the origin of the oak (French, American ...) and the way the barrel was treated (burning or not) and of course the liquid that it contained when it comes to a second filling for a finish (Rum, Cognac, Aramagnac, Burgundy wine, Barollo wine ......). The combinations are almost endless and this is what thrills whiskey lovers who sometimes rediscover a distillery through new finishes.

A whiskey such as Bourbon is always aged in new oak barrels, which will give this wonderful alcohol notes of spices such as vanilla and brioche and toasty notes. In Scotland single malts are aged in barrels that have already contained bourbon (the vast majority), Sherry (remember the Macallan 12 years was sherry at 43 °), port or wine sometimes in second finish after a passage in Bourbon. This results in a wide variety of aromatic nuances. The dominant aromas and flavors of the wood are notes of caramel, spices, dried fruits and cocoa.
