Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"This is thoroughly old school. Straightforward sweet aromas of cream soda, melted butter, bananas foster, vanilla pudding, and even a whiff of charred oak. The palate is oily and earnest about its ingredients -- cornmeal, toasted grain, banana, barrel spices, and vanilla extract. The finish is warming with char hash-marks and toasted marshmallows. A solid reminder of the hallmarks that built bourbon’s reputation."
