Barrell Bourbon Batch 014 Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey

We reserved a portion of Barrell Bourbon Batch 012 in the original barrels, which became the foundation for Barrell Bourbon Batch 014. We then selected additional 9-year-old bourbon barrels for their fruit notes, as well as a number of 14-year-old high rye barrels to deliver a bit of spice and oak. The result is complex and thoughtful – a nicely balanced spicy bourbon.

FLAVOR NOTES

A vivid honey, raisin and fall fruit flavor with an underlying bed of baking spices is the first impression. Those flavors are quickly followed by a creamy texture with a citrus curd. The finish is long with an elusive combination of almond paste and black pepper.

  • Appearance

Rose gold with a light copper center.

  • Nose

An impatient sniff off the freshly opened bottle is rewarded with an incredibly vivid aroma of honey. A delicate balance of spirit-driven dried fruit, including fig, cranberry, apple, and raisin, and oak-driven baking spices of cinnamon and chai tea. This is underpinned by deeper, grain-driven notes of whole wheat sourdough. With time the nose grows sweeter and creamier, with notes of, lime curd, milk chocolate, and amaretto. The fruit grows brighter, evolving into apricot and passion fruit with a touch of green peppercorn.

  • Palate

The mouth feel is sweet and rounded like a fine calvados but the flavors are lively, almost effervescent. Opens on honey, apricot, white tea, and marigold, with delicately bitter notes of tulsi. This is balanced with soft, crushed almond, maple syrup, and oyster mushroom. Patience is rewarded with warm almond croissant, macadamia nut, nutmeg, and a burst of passion fruit.

  • Finish

Brings candied cherry, cinnamon, and angostura bitters, like the last sip of a beautifully balanced Manhattan.

With a few drops of spring water

The floral aromas develop further complexity of jasmine flowers, and the fruit jumps out on the palate, introducing muscat grape, trending toward lychee. A strong tobacco note emerges in the finish, making the mouth water for another sip.
