Cask TypeEx-Bourbon Barrels
"A rich, sweet nose pulls you in with candied pecans, caramel and crème brûlée, as well as raw honey and maple syrup. The palate continues on the same track, showcasing medjool dates, syrupy candied fruits, molasses, and baking spices. A pleasing, medium length finish offers oak, earthy leather, tingly black pepper, dark brown sugar, and blackstrap. (Review: Batch #3)."
