The brewers say:
Speyside whisky barrel-aged barley wine – A classic strong winter beer, this American-style barley wine has been aged for four months in ex-sherry whisky casks from Glenfarclas distillery. Cascade and Columbus hops deliver citrus, spicy and floral characteristics along with a prominent bitterness that is balanced out by the biscuity, toasted malt body. An Abbey ale yeast strain provides dark and dried fruit ester aromas and spicy alcohol notes which are complemented by the sweeter flavours from the whisky cask, bringing everything together to create a strong, complex beer full of character.
Blimey, it's boozy! We tasted raisins, woody whiskey / whisky & sweet sherry with toffee, ginger and spice in supporting roles. To say this 'hit the spot' is a massive understatement. Bravo, the brewers.
