In the American Whiskey Rye flight of The Spirits Business Autumn Blind Tastings, Filibuster Dual Cask Rye secured a Gold award for its “warming vanilla, toffee, caramel with just a hint of unexpected spice on the finish”. Congratulations on another award and a wonderful Virginia Rye!
Filibuster took home a total of three Gold Medals.
The Gold medals came thick and fast as we worked our way through the American Whiskey segment, starting with Filibuster Dual Cask Bourbon, which delivered “overripe tropical fruits” on the nose with “vanilla and loads of oak” on the palate”.
In the American Whiskey – Rye flight, Filibuster Dual Cask Rye also secured a Gold award for its “warming vanilla, toffee, caramel with just a hint of unexpected spice on the finish”.
Filibuster Boondoggler also walked away with a Gold in the American Whiskey – Single Grain flight, thanks to its aromas of “chestnut peels, some fruitiness and baking spices” and “charged fruitiness on the finish”.
