Barrell Whiskey Batch 001 is made from a bourbon mash of corn, rye and malted barley. The whiskey was distilled in Indiana and matured in Kentucky for seven years in ex-bourbon barrels. While using ex-bourbon barrels (as opposed to new American oak barrels) means the whiskey cannot be called bourbon, the used barrels allow the expression of many subtler, complex flavors masked by the abundant wood sugars in new barrels. Each Barrell batch is different with a limited release. Once sold out it’s gone forever.
Crusty, egg battered brioche – French toast dripping in butter and dark maple syrup. Brooding alcohol explodes right up front, no mistaking the 122.5 Proof stuffing of each slurp. Thin rivulets of bruleed corn pudding. Rich swirls of darkly scented, spicy Mexican chocolate become soft eruptions at the finish, leaving you with visions of the next sip. Neat
Appearance: Brilliant and golden, deeply shimmering and clear at the edges
