Reservoir is a small craft distillery established in 2008 in Richmond, Virginia. From the get-go, they specialized in a core range of 100% single-cereal mash bills from locally grown organic rye, corn, and wheat. It’s aged for two years in small charred American white oak casks of only 5 gallons, less than a tenth of the customary 53-gallon barrels.
In the glass, it develops red fruit, caramel, vanilla, menthol and crème brûlée. Notes of oak are added to the palate. The finish is medium-long, slightly dry, with cocoa, leather, wood and a touch of spices.
