Daddy Rack 4 Year Old Cask Strength (barrel 06)
You Save: £15.00
A single cask Tennessee whiskey here from Daddy Rack, which was founded by drinks industry veteran J. Arthur Rackham, named after a nickname that his eldest daughter gave him. Drawn from the single cask (barrel number 6) was a four-year-old whiskey, produced from a mash bill of corn (80%), rye (10%), and malted barley (10%). It was also bottled at cask strength, meaning it weighs in at a generous 61.6% ABV(!), and yielded just 228 bottles. Precious stuff!
But the whiskey had to go through an extra step, as all Tennessee whiskey legally has to: the Lincoln County Process, whereby the spirit must be filtered through maple charcoal before it’s filled into lightly-charred American white oak barrels. Daddy Rack goes one step further, maple charcoal-filtering the whiskey after it’s been in the cask, too!
Pear skin and peach fruitiness, with wood shavings, black pepper, and candied orange peel.
Green apple and creamy vanilla, balanced by toasted walnut, cocoa, and more pepper spice.
Spicy oak, buttery biscuits, candied pecan, and cherry jam.
