For Virgil Kaine’s eighth creation, we decided to kick it up a notch — or eight. Partnering with Gainesville Cooperagem this limited-edition, cask-finished bourbon is aged for the first 5 years in new, charred oak barrels and then finished in toasted barrels delicately smoked with vanilla beans to enhance the natural notes derived from oak.
Named for the final notch in the throttle of a diesel train Eighth Notch is speeding ahead with a powerfully smooth taste. If you have been waiting for the perfect silky bourbon, it’s in your hands!
Playing off the sweet, nutty notes of the whiskey, this full-bodied bourbon is infused with locally sourced green tea and honey. Each sip reveals an unmistakable and well-balanced taste. With notes of lemon and mint, this refreshing, herbal spirit is ready to bring out the complexity in any whiskey cocktail.
