2XO Oak Series American Oak Bourbon
2XO is a new whiskey brand from renowned blender Dixon Dedman. 2XO, meaning Two Times Oak, refers to Dixon’s unique blending process where he re-barrels his hand-selected whiskey into new charred oak barrels to create a unique combination of intense flavors, character, and complexity with each blend.
The American Oak blend's bold notes of vanilla and caramel arise from the secondary addition of highly charred white oak introduced toward the end of maturation. These sweeter flavors create a complex balance with the spice notes from the rye in the mash bill.
