Nose
Honeyed, oaky and spicy with a light whisky note. Complex and inviting.
Palate
Creamy, spicy and smooth with vanilla and a touch of citrus. Sweet but not cloying, thanks to a dry, oaky backdrop.
Finish
Creamy vanilla notes continue into the dry, oaky, bittersweet finish that is rather thick and gently warming.
Comment
This is the beer that set the Innis & Gunn ball rolling and at the same time rekindled an interest in wood-aged beers. Clean, interesting, mellow and tasty.

Nose
Subtle redolent combination of vanilla and toffee with a citric background.
Palate
Vanilla dominates and is joined by malt sweetness. Oakiness is hinted at.
Finish
Smooth,warm and long lingering toffee finish.
Comment
Blonde ale that has the attributes expected out of a bourbon barrel.
