Cask Typeex-bourbon and charred american oak
"The nose is quite gentle; peat is the primary note with strong undertones of toasted oak and brine. On the palate, there's more peat and smoke with dry leather and iodine. A flash of fruit - mostly raisin and apple - cuts through the heaviness. The finish lingers and fades gently. Light and easy drinking."
