Barrell Craft Spirits Batch 027 5 year old
|Region||United States, Kentucky|
|Brand||Barrell Craft Spirits|
The Barrell Batch 27 is a blend of straight bourbon whiskies distilled and aged using American white oak barrels. The batch began with a blend of six-year-old whiskey aged in fruit forward barrels in Tennessee with five-year-old whiskey, aged in spice-forward barrels from Indiana.
The blenders then layered in 13 and 15-year-old barrels with more wood tannin and nine-year-old barrels with a higher rye content. The new batch was finished off using five and eight-year-old wheated bourbon barrels to soften the batch, brighten the front palate, and solidify a cohesiveness to an otherwise extremely complex flavor profile.
As for the flavor of Barrell Bourbon’s Batch 027, the distillers are unequivocal about the taste of this new blend being a “cherry bomb.” As they write, “At times bright and juicy, at others, brooding and oxidized, but while there are many flavors to be found, cherry stands above them all.”
