Cask TypeCharred Oak
"The layers of oak are brilliant on the nose with bright orange zest, juicy cherry, vanilla and dusty rye spices intertwined into a refined package. There is intricacy on the textural palate with sweet caramel, baking spices, old oak with mild char. Zesty citrus comes back to the front late palate with some citrus gin-like botanical notes on the finish. This rye works toward a developed flavor balance instead of an in your face rye. "
