Barrell Whiskey Batch #001. Image courtesy Barrell Craft Spirits LLC.The American Whiskey companion to Barrell Bourbon, with a punch that doesn’t knock out the flavors and complexity with its strength.

The nose has notes of dark chocolate, maple syrup, allspice, touches of oak and clove, walnuts, and caramel cola. The taste is intense and aggressive with clove and allspice dominating, but not overwhelming notes of honey, vanilla, burnt popcorn, molasses, and a hint of dark chocolate. The finish is long and fades smoothly with a dry, tannic oakiness and touches of vanilla and molasses. (June, 2015)
