Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"The nose offers spice and spearmint, with vanilla sweetness hiding behind heat. The palate opens with brown sugar and vanilla, leading into burnt toast and char. Sultry smooth all the way through even with its hefty proof. Dry oak and spice come out on the finish with pine, mint, and the lingering rich sweetness of vanilla in myriad forms, think: vanilla frosting, pudding, and pound cake. "
