Barbera Cask Finish – Single Malt Whisky
The Langatun Barbera Cask Finish is a new bottling in our Cask Finish series. After pre-storage in a French oak Chardonnay cask, which gives the whiskey a delicate sweetness with beautiful vanilla and wood notes, the single malt whiskey is still transferred to a Barbera cask from Piedmont for a post-maturation period of 10 months.
Barbera is certainly one of the archetypal Piedmontese grape varieties, grown in the dreamy surroundings of the Monferrato hills.
The Barbera cask, selected on site by our master distiller, served 3 years of aging for various typical Barbera d’Asti red wines, which give this whiskey bottling a wonderfully powerful and fruity note. The bottling is limited to 496 bottles.
