Cask Typecharred American white oak barrels
"Rúa, or "red" in Gaelic, is an apt name for this richly hued American single malt. Getting its color from charred American oak, it carries the expected notes of vanilla and caramel. These are complemented by a very full body, notes of fresh baked bread and praline, and long, sweet finish. It's instantly enjoyable, and a standout among young, craft-distilled whiskeys."
