It is much sweeter than the the whiskey cask, which tastes more balanced, but more complex than the original. A decent showing from Innis & Gunn.

Beautiful orange color. Skunky aroma in the bottle. Weak head. Medium, creamy body with candy aroma and a sweet (but not malty) oak flavor. Sharp finish. Overall, a nice barrel aged brew that I would have again, but probably not more than 1 in an evening.
