Barrell Whiskey Batch 005 is a spice driven blend of 9 year-old whiskeys finished in Amaro barrels, American Brandy barrels, Bourbon barrels, and Cognac casks. We finished each whiskey separately and assembled a final blend that also includes Straight Bourbon. This finish then blend technique allows us to focus on the key flavors of each component first, and then on harmony and precision while blending. We believe that this batch is far greater than the sum of its parts.
A balance of honey and spice, this whiskey conjures memories of old candy shops and autumn drams. Enjoy a dark, brooding sweetness balanced with wood and a hint of fire. The 118.4 proof unravels into long folds of complexity and contrast.
Palate: It opens sweet and herbaceous, with notes of molasses, maple sugar, Mary Jane candies, and licorice root.
