Whisky Cask Finishes

Whiskies are generally matured in either American or European oak barrels, but some whiskies are finished in other types of casks. This can have a major influence on the nose, flavour and color of the whisky. We’ve compiled an overview of the most common cask finishes, and listed the flavour- and color effect of these additional maturation periods.
