Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Strong medicinal and mint aromas on the nose, with pine needles and resin, and an herbal profile. Smells young, and its pale straw coloration in the glass backs that up. Dig deep to find sweet scents, with a cinnamon crumb-cake aroma lurking in the background. The palate is dry and a bit flat, offering oak and malt. The finish is sharp and quick, punching through your nasal passage on the way down. Ice totally changes things, offering a sweeter and fuller profile, with more caramel and vanilla--would strongly recommend drinking it as such. "
