This bottling, distilled September 2009, spent 11 years maturing in a 1st-fill bourbon hogshead. It was bottled at cask strength in October 2020 at 61% ABV. A nose of damp barley (reminiscent of a malting floor) mingles with black peppercorn and Frosted Mini-Wheats. The generous mouthfeel is lush with pear drops, lemon, and graham cracker, finishing with black tea, toasted grain, and gentle spice. Cask # 716153 yielded a total of 265 bottles.
