Cask Typecharred, new white American Oak
"The rye is light gold with hints of amber. An earthy, sweet bouquet with notes of orange, cinnamon, and butterscotch greet you on the nose. As you taste, rye spice is evident on the initial attack with caramel, oak, and a slight pine flavor. Well-rounded, incredibly smooth, with balanced spice throughout. "
