    It still has that honey, vanilla, citrus flavour from the first fill Bourbon casks – but you’re also getting something a little bit different, too. There’s a smokiness and an oakiness. It’s a heavier note, with more wood influence. Extra depth


    • Nose

      Big malty notes, soft brown sugar, vanilla toffee, blossom honey and a mild oaky spiciness.

    • Taste

      Syrupy with a toffee sweetness, some citrusy notes of tangy orange peel, followed by oak vanilla and a touch of cinnamon and ginger spices at the end.

    • Finish

      Enduring gentle waves of vanilla and oak spices.
