This Saturday, Pottstown, PA’s Manatawny Still Works is releasing the latest in its Small Batch Whiskey Series. The series allows the distillery to play around with its mash bills, time aging and in this case, finishing the whiskey in port barrels from California’s Gandona Estate Winery.
This is the 13th release in the series and will only be available at the distillery and at select accounts that regularly carry Manatawny Still Works.
NOSE: Oak, Cherries, Raisin, Caramel, Cinnamon
PALATE: Port, Oak, Vanilla, Chocolate, Big Fruit
FINISH: Tannins, Jam, Bitter-Sweet Chocolate
COMMENTS: In partnership with Gandona Estate Winery in Napa, we’ve used their Fraga Do Arco port casks to finish this small batch offering. The port influence is strong and prevalent throughout with notes of cherry and other big fruits. There is a marked sweetness with notes of malt and oak, imparting complexity and concentrating flavors from the port casks.
BATCH13 will be released at the distillery on Saturday, February 18th at 12 p.m. for $44.99.
