Cask Typeex-American whiskey casks and ex-Bordeaux red wine casks
"The wine casks have imparted lots of flavor. Plums, red berries, but also more a candy-like influence, such as wine gums. There's a whiff of gun powder, as well as smoked bacon, espresso, and wood smoke. The palate gives berries and black forest gateau, backed up by a dark smokiness and a very syrupy mouthfeel. The peat is almost secondary with this dark and brooding whisky."
