Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Vanilla pudding and maple syrup open up the nose, followed by oak, char, and brandied cherries. Vanilla also takes center stage on the palate, along with sweet grape juice, cedar wood, nutmeg, and cloves. A medium length, sweet finish again showcases vanilla, along with oak and spice. Consistently enjoyable all the way through, though lacking a certain complexity to make it a standout. "
