As its name suggests, this bourbon is aged in true cask barrels made of American white oak.

Once it has been distilled it's put into the true cask barrels where it will age for at least three years before being ready to bottle and enjoy.

During its time in the barrel, Town Branch True Cask develops a rich amber hue with notes of caramel and oak on the nose backed up by flavors of vanilla and spice on the palate. It's a full bodied bourbon that finishes long and smooth allowing you to savor every sip.

At 90 proof, Town Branch True Cask is perfect for sipping neat or adding to your favorite such as an Old Fashioned or Manhattan. So if you're looking for something special from Kentucky's Bourbon Trail then look no further than Town Branch True Casks!
