Virginia Black American Whiskey is an American Whiskey from rapper, song writer and actor Drake. This American whiskey is made from a blend of two, three, and four-year-old Bourbon and has glamour, swagger and soul. It is presented in a unique and decidedly decadent black and gold bottle with gift box. The two, three and four-year old bourbon whiskies, focused on a high-rye content.
The spirit itself is dark amber in colour. The bouquet is smooth and buttery, with aromas of maple syrup, popcorn, and some mild oak spice. The palate, no surprises here. Almost unctuous in mouth feel, this is sweet and inoffensive in all ways. Creamy vanilla and sawdust gives way to a curiously vacant mid-palate, before a short, dry, reasonably pleasant rye-inflected finish. The texture is so buttery you hardly notice you’re drinking it – it just slips down your throat – sublime.
