Richland’s new charred oak style is quite evident. It noses similarly to a bourbon, with hints of oak, caramel, butterscotch and vanilla. Then, on the palate, smoke and spice lead the way, with hints of caraway and a back palate cherry, a note that normally hits on the front of the palate for me. From here, it’s baking spice and the return of butterscotch, all over a mouthcoating moutfheel. It finishes long and strong with a hint of caramel chew.
