Cask Typefinished in ex-oloroso sherry
"The first impression here is beautiful fresh plums followed by a fine cigar scent; sweet tobacco and spice. The sherry cask influences the taste in the best of ways, imparting a lovely soft and smoky flavor. The high proof is nearly undetectable. This whiskey finishes with pepper, burnt sugar, and a warmth that will bring any whiskey lover back for another glass."
