Cask Typeex-McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt barrels
"Big Gin's fairly gentle botanical character gets an invigorating lift from the peat-accented Oregon oak cask here. The brooding sweetness from the barrel gives the Juniper and coriander a nice backdrop to play off of from start to finish. Certainly worth a go in a dirty martini. "
