After several years, once our whiskies have developed a robust richness and a mellow golden hue, we taste and assemble the final blend… but instead of going right to bottling, we allow the batch to “rest” a while – a few months or longer, in 225 liter casks made of French oak previously used in the aging of wine. The tighter grain and subtle flavor profile of these older French oak barrels adds a degree of elegance and finesse to the finished whiskey – nothing overpowering, but a layer of stylish complexity that really pulls all the components together.
Our way costs more, and takes more time, but the results speak for themselves – Filibuster: Be Heard!
Dual Cask aging is what makes our small batch whiskies stand apart from the crowd. Whiskey derives its deep golden color, signature aroma and smooth flavors of vanilla, caramel and spice from aging in fully charred American White oak barrels, or “casks”. This aging process has long been the heart and soul of good whiskey.
