To celebrate the New Year, Barrell creates a limited edition bourbon. Its composition changes based on what’s available. Throughout the year they find barrels of particular interest that will contribute to the blend. After several test blends, they determine what is the most complete and interesting.
The nose is chock full of dried fruits, almonds, and dark chocolate. The palate is where you’ll find loads of spice and balance. With a few drops of water you’ll find an additional depth and complexity with a creamy mouth feel and an increase in ripe, sweet fruit. Produced from a selection of 4, 5, 8, 11, 14 and 15-year-old straight bourbon whiskeys, distilled in TN, KY, IN, NY, TX and IL. A new year, with a new special whiskey. Our limited allocation is selling out quickly, don’t wait for 2020!
We have been really impressed with everything that Joe Beatrice and his team at Barrell Craft Spirits have released. And it’s clear that a panel of highly regarded judges felt the same. To be crowned the “Best Bourbon” at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition is a monumental feat for this rapidly growing, small batch whiskey company. When it is time for a new batch, the team sorts through casks through rigorous tasting to pick the collection of whiskeys that are showing best at that moment, regardless of age, and bottle them at cask strength. The result are completely unique batches of bourbon. We can attest that these one-of-a-kind batches are stunningly delicious. We think you’ll agree.
