Cask Typekiln-dried white oak staves
"Yellow gold in color with a nose of leather, cooked corn, and cinnamon. Sharp taste of spice initially with a quick mid-palate and finish of burnt caramel. The whiskey’s taste does not stick around for very long on the palate but leaves a dry feeling in the mouth. "
