Cask Typeused oak & cherrywood
"The cherrywood definitely comes through on the nose and palate with apples and cherries taking a prominent role. Clean, fresh corn on the nose becomes more of a roasted, toasted quality on the palate and the whiskey has a slick, but sweet profile. Lively straightforward, this is one of the few corn whiskeys you should seek out to enjoy on its own."
