Cask Typeused Sazerac Rye barrels
"This añejo is a light straw yellow in color, with aromas of cornbread and butterscotch. It's silky on the palate with prominent notes of sweet citrus and oak, as well as a mellow spice. Though its flavor is very interesting, its citrus notes throw it a bit off balance with warmer notes that are trying to come through."
