Cedar Ridge The QuintEssential Signature Blend is an American Single Malt Whiskey from Iowa's Cedar Ridge Distillery. The whiskey is named for founder and master distiller Jeff Quint, who showcases a blend of 100% peated malt aged for four to five years in bourbon barrels and unpeated malt initially aged for between two and three years in bourbon barrels.
The whiskey is then finished for an extra one to two years in an assortment of barrels, including rum, brandy, port, sherry, and wine. The marrying process is then conducted via a solera system, resulting in a depth of character and complexity that is not achieved in a traditional single-barrel aging system. The QuintEssential Signature Blend has bottled at 46% alcohol by volume. Enjoy!
