Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"A deep mahogany color beckons from the glass, with big baking spices leading on the nose, followed by vanilla and dry oak. The palate starts with rich sweetness, think hot caramel on a chocolate dessert, with sugar-dusted berries, cedar, cinnamon, red wine, and candy cane. The finish is long and sweet, with juicy fruits and mint chocolate chip ice cream balanced by peppery oak, leather, and a Red Hots combination of spice and cinnamon."
