This comes from an ex-bourbon cask, and while malty, the nose has notes of mild clove, nutmeg, and linseed oil. The taste is spicy with a subtle oiliness underneath and notes of coriander, nutmeg, linseed oil, and lemon peel. The finish is citrusy and long with lemony notes that stick to the tongue with a good mouthfeel. Interesting.
