We have neve made it a secret that we love the offerings of Barrell Bourbon. This newest offering from them knocks it out of the park, though. Claiming the award for 2017 Best Bourbon from the San Francisco Spirits Awards.
Batch 011 is distilled and aged in Tennessee but crafted and bottled in Kentucky. It is bottled at Cask Strength: 114.8 proof.
According to Barrell, "Raw honey drenched Bing cherries atop toasted sweet corn pudding. Hearty Russian Rye toast soldiers sprinkled with sea salt slathered in maple butter and summer fruit compote. The rich and flavorful grains plunge into soft creaminess and recollects state fair caramel popcorn in the finish, belying the 114.8 proof heat."
