Distilled/Owned by: MGP / Joseph Magnus
Region: Indiana / DC
Aged For: NAS
Cask Type: New charred oak, finished in PX Sherry casks
Chill Filtered: No
Drank: Neat, in a glencairn.
Nose: Apples, peaches, corn mash, caramel, citrus, oak, and light toffee
Mouthfeel: Medium body and syrupy

Finish: Medium warmth and long lasting, PX sherry with leathery cinnamon
Thoughts: A nice change up of the usual bourbon notes, with fruit front and center, and the texture taking on some of the syrupy feel from the PX. That said I’d rate this about the same as the regular Magnus release.
