Casking Strength

I have barreled it both at 40% abv and at 80% abv. I think that the higher ABV the alcohol moves in and out of the oak faster giving a much darker color quicker but when cut taste the same as the one put up at 40% abv. But what do I know? Customers love both. Coop

Hi Dave,

We casked at 63.4% on December 9, 2011. We bottled this on February 7, 2013. The results were fantastic! We started with pretty good quality wine and by all accounts the brandy is excellent. We have several more casks that we will wait longer on.
