WOODINVILLE, Wash. — Woodinville Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished with Toasted Applewood Staves, a real craft whiskey handmade in Washington, is now available.
“Every fall, we do a Harvest Release, and back in 2017, our release was our flagship Bourbon finished with Applewood Staves. Of all our releases, this has been one of our most popular – so, this year we’re bringing it back Nationally,” says Woodinville Whiskey co-founder, Brett Carlile.
Tasting Notes: After the whiskey was fully mature, staves of toasted applewood were added. The finishing process adds depth and richness with aromas of apple and berry on the nose and palate on top of the traditional bourbon notes of rich caramel, dark chocolate and vanilla bean with a sweet lingering finish.
