Cask Typerefill American oak hogheads
"The nose is waxy and honey-filled, along with mineral notes, and the aroma of a tropical fruit cup with syrup. The palate quickly shifts into black pepper, charcoal, smoke, sea salt, and spice, with a surprisingly light body that still packs big flavors. The finish is quick and drying, with spicy oak and more black pepper, leaving the tongue tingling as if you just finished eating something spicy."
