Nestville Whisky Black and White Edition is a special edition of Single Barrel Whisky aged in Sherry casks. The first years are aged in American bourbon barrels, and the last years are spent in Spanish sherry wine barrels. The B&W name stands by Bourbon & Wine (wine).
The practice of aging whisky in Sherry casks began in England, where they were quite fond of buying sweet Spanish Sherry in casks. Once the casks were empty, the English had no use for them and burned them, which caught the eye of a certain whisky maker. With visions of cheap barrels, he gave them a try. He was pleasantly surprised by the result, and this started off the tradition of Sherry-ageing whisky. The Sherry cask gives Nestville Whisky B&W a magnificent, singular shade of brown and the unique flavour of fresh ripe fruit.
