This is a long-matured Straight Kentucky Whiskey finished in Cabernet casks from Dunn Vineyards in Howell Mountain! An exclusive like no other, the national sales director for Barrell knew this would be right in our wheelhouse and crafted it just for Bounty Hunter! This richly balanced, zesty, oak-laden bottle is laced with dark fruits and a wisp of oaky tannins. Dunn is one of our favorite wineries and the influence the Cabernet cask has on this whiskey is unmistakeable. It's got loads of character, density, hints of spice, oak, caramel, and dried fruits. There is something for every whiskey drinker to love in this bottle.
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.
