Cask Typeused bourbon barrels
"Not one aromatic tries to take center stage despite the many that are present. A little vanilla, butterscotch, some floral honey, delicate green herbs, and gentle wood spices are just a few that are found. The texture is soft and not too astringent. The finish is peppery, dry and a bit smoky. Most whiskeys that have been aged in used barrels are relegated to being used as only as a mixer, this is one that can be appreciated sipping neat."
