The nose is not super intense, but you do find vanilla, char smoke, and other bourbon influences. There is more of the same on the palate with a touch of sweetness on the entry. The sherry wood character doesn't poke its head in until the very last minute as a dried fruit and nutty aftertaste."
The 12 Year Special Reserve stays true to the Original bottling in that is a blend of three kinds of whiskey: single malt, grain, and single pot still. In this case, the bottling is largely comprised of the single malt and pot still. The whiskey is aged in a mix of both bourbon and sherry casks, some up to 15 years.
