Cask Typenew, charred oak barrels
"New Liberty's Dutch Malt Whiskey is pleasantly grain-forward, with notes of chocolate malt up front that fade into hints of cereal on the finish. Despite its young age, the barrels impart roundness and balanced flavors of vanilla and oak. It's enjoyable on its own, and also has enough character to likely do well in classic whiskey cocktails. "
