Fullers Reserve Whisky Cask (Brewer’s Reserve No.5)
Brewer’s Reserve No.5 is a full-bodied limited-edition beer, aged for 18 months in 30-year-old whisky casks.
The time spent in whisky-soaked wood delivers a beer that is a joy to the senses. Pouring a dark brown colour you are rewarded for your patience with conjuring sherry-like aromas with notes of bourbon.
On the palate it delivers sweet biscuit, fruitcake flavours and ripe notes of cherry, ending with a warm, smooth and satisfying finish.
A glass of pure history and a brewing masterclass.
