Barrell Craft Spirits BCS 4 Year Old Cask Strength Rye Whiskey (750ml) - Batch 03
Tasting note: A blend of 4-14 year old rye whiskeys from Indiana, Poland, Tennessee and Canada, all with distinct personalities. The nose presents a complex sweet/dry interchange of mixed herbs, pepper, dried apple and pine buds versus toffee apple, vanillan oak and mint chocolate. Follows in a concentrated, skillfully balanced medley of bittersweet oak, apply rye, dark chocolate, white pepper and muddled mint in a salivating, prolonged finish. A vivid, complex and mouthwatering rye that cleverly integrates young with old. 58.35% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... One of the best releases to hit the shelves in 2020 came from Barrell Bourbon, masters of sourcing and blending standout barrels of whiskey from around the world. This third batch included whiskey aged from four to 14 years distilled in Tennessee, Indiana, Canada, and Poland. Yep, Polish rye—not likely your go-to whiskey. At a cask strength of 116.7 proof, it is not overly hot, and the notes of spice, fruit, and brown sugar make this rye shine above many others, both distilled and sourced. - esquire.com
