Virginia Highland Single Malt Scotch Whiskey
The Virginia Distillery Company’s home, Eades Hollow, is located in beautiful Nelson County on US Route 29 in Lovingston. We are only 25 minutes from Wintergreen Resort and the city of Charlottesville; just a day trip from Richmond and Washington D.C. We are pleased to be part of a thriving community of wineries, breweries and other distilleries in this beautiful Commonwealth.
We started by acquiring an aged, vatted Highland malt from Scotland, already complex and luscious with acacia honey and ginger notes. To enhance its quality and to give it the taste of our Commonwealth, we then finished it in French oak wine barrels used to age Virginia port-style wine at a vineyard a few miles from our distillery.
NOSE: Brandied cherries, nougat candy, oak, and cinnamon
PALATE: Rich nougat, tart cherry, tobacco, light notes of cocoa, rather thin mouthfeel.
FINISH: Very dry, slow, and not especially intense burn.
