Barrell Bourbon Batch 16 9.5yr 750ml
Bourbon Whiskey distilled and aged in Tennessee, Indiana, and Kentucky. A selection of 9 years 9 months, 11, and 15 year old barrels aged in American white oak barrels in Kentucky. 105.8 proof cask strength bottling with a mash bill of corn, rye and malted barley.
Polished copper with edges fracturing into a spectrum ranging from marigold to pollen. Sweet on the nose balanced by oaky spice and oak-derived notes that only come from slow maturation. Fruity notes of rubbed orange and lime peel, umeboshi, dried apricot, fresh peach tantalize along with ever-present intriguing mineral notes of flint, slate, and iron. The texture is sweet and oily, deeply flavorful without any woody bitterness. Coconut oil and honeycomb provide a rich backdrop of bright notes of peach, milk chocolate, Italian roast coffee and barrel char. Blackberry and elderberry come to the fore as the mineral notes of graphite, slate, iron, copper, salt broaden. All this is overlaid atop molasses.
