3 years minimum in oak barrels for the woody whiskey

A whiskey is only "born" as a whiskey after having spent 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 therefore 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 in which the barrel was treated (burnt or not) and of course the liquid it contained when it is 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.

The Woody whiskeys are aged in new oak barrels

A whiskey like Bourbon is always aged in new oak barrels, which will give this wonderful alcohol hints of spices like vanilla and brioche and toasted notes. In Scotland, single malts are aged in barrels that have already contained bourbon (the vast majority), Sherry (remember the Macallan 12 years old was 43 ° sherry), port or wine sometimes as a second finish. after a passage in Bourbon barrels. This results in a wide variety of aromatic nuances. The main aromas and flavors given by the wood are notes of Caramel, Spices, Dried Fruits and Cocoa.
