Cask Type10-gallon, charred, new white oak casks
"The fruity aroma of a young malted barley whiskey mingles with notes of vanilla in Old Line's American Single Malt. Oak rushes in on the palate, dominating the initial taste until the more delicate notes of the spirit emerge on the finish. It's a very flavorful whiskey, and a nice departure from typical American styles, but a lighter use of oak would allow the spirit itself to shine through more prominently. "
