Cask Typerefill American oak hogheads
"Caramel coated apples lead the charge on a creamy, rich and toffee-laden nose. The palate begins with buttery, flaky pie crust, followed by brief astringent and bitter notes which fade away to baking spices and butterscotch. The finish is pleasant and lengthy, with more apples, oak and spice, and a lingering, lip licking buttery creaminess."
