Ex-bourbon barrels and puncheons*, ex-sherry butts**, refilled, re-charred, and

remade hogsheads***

Blended - 51,4% - 50cl


* A large cask of varying capacity, but usually 80 gallons (304 liters)

the whiskey and imbues it with its gourmet flavors (nuts, chocolate, dried

*** With a capacity of 250 liters, it is a reconstituted drum from the staves of a

bourbon cask and 25% new oak. Its effect on whiskey is close to that of

bourbon barrel drier. It colors the whiskey moderately.
