|CASK TYPE||Bourbon / Sherry|
The sister to the Black Snake whisky. As with its older brother, Red Snake only comes from top-class, first-fill ex-Bourbon casks. However, unlike its brother, each Red Snake comes from just one single cask.
The first notes are something between ether and wood with a touch of vanilla. The wood also has a little coconut in it. Some hints of chocolate and toffee with a definite vanilla char sweetness. In the mouth there is much more of the usual toffee vanilla sweetness I am coming to associate with Red Snake. There is still the malty cereal note that is usually typical of Red Snake. For the strength this is surprisingly soft with very subtle tannins and a tingle around the gums. There is pleasant warmth in the cheeks with a sweet vanilla toffee aftertaste.
