Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"This Small Batch takes on a good deal of color from its short time in barrel, but it still has the assertive heat of a young whiskey. The spice overtakes the vanilla notes of the oak. Sweeter than most peaty Scotches, it combines campfire smokiness with some of the easy sweetness of a traditional American whiskey. "
