Cask Typenew, charred American oak, finished in ex-cabernet sauvignon barrels
"The cabernet is present in the nose of this whiskey, providing a lush, grapey, and almost brandy-like aroma. On the palate, we're treated to flavors of candied ginger, plums, and clementine. The finish is pleasingly complex with a hint of alcohol burn that doesn't spoil the party at all. The wine barrel influence has truly turned what was a young, unwieldy craft spirit into something much more sophisticated. "
