Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"As should be expected, 1816 Cask packs a more potent punch than its 90 proof brother, 1816 Reserve. On the nose, there's caramel and butterscotch, with a rye spiciness and hints of pepper. Lingering in the background are lighter touches of honey, floral and melon. A modest smoky and charred molasses component is discovered as well. Full bodied and smooth, there's a pleasant warming on the finish but no burn, leaving spice as the lasting component. Add a few drops of water to bring out a richer, deeper sweetness, along with baked fruits and honey. "
