Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Fifty/Fifty offers a minty, medicinal and herbal nose, interlaced with rye spice. The palate is hot and a bit oily, offering oak and a light caramel and molasses. There's just a quick flashing finish, with final notes of brown sugar and more rye spice. Add an ice cube and find a richer, sweeter taste, with notes of dark chocolate, caramel, malt, and oak. "
