Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"The aroma is remarkably similar to a more traditional bourbon, with vanilla, caramel, a bit of grain and some light oak notes. A bit of cinnamon is detectable, with just a slight alcohol burn, surprising given that it is 50% abv. On the palate, the entry is a bit thin, with a light vanilla note, some oak, chocolate and creosote. There is no middle to this bourbon, just an entry and a finish. Though the finish brings some milk chocolate, even more creosote brings thoughts to a flavor you’d get licking the inside of a chimney. This whiskey tastes incomplete, and a bit one dimensional. "
