Barrell Bourbon Batch 019
750 ML (Standard)
The initial impression is of power, but it'Schecked and balanced by its breadth and complexity.Like the nose, sweet notes are most apparent, those of salted caramel, marzipan, coconut milk and sabayon.The herbs, too, are present.Rosemary, Jasmine tea and the leafiness of an Oloroso sherry.Pops of nectarine and lemon cordial round out the proceedings.
Waffle soaked with syrup and honey roasted cashew.Subtle, herbaceous accents color the aroma.Benedictine liqueur, eucalyptus, saaz hops and fried sage.Fruity notes are more subdued, though gooseberry, mirabelle plum an orange zest lurk beneath the surface.Ginger ale and cardamom barrel spice settle over the top.
Clean and consistent, Rainier cherry, amaretto, peaches and cream, and a touch of salt.
Barrell Bourbon Batch 019 is a study in complexity.We sorted a careful selection of 9.to 14-year-old barrels from Kentucky and Tennessee into 5 groups.We then blended portions of those 5 groups together to maximize the unique qualities of each.
