Seelbach's Barrell Library: Last month we were able to grab the last few cases from some limited Barrell Craft Spirits Releases. This includes the sought after early releases of Dovetail and some of the 15-year-old Barrell Craft Spirits Bourbon. These will go fast! When they're gone, they're gone. Below is a sales sheet so that you can see everything we have.
As always, if you have any questions, please let me know!
Barrell Craft Spirits 15 Year Old Bourbon
Source: Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana
Proof: 105.1 proof
Release Date: 2018 release
Named Best American Whiskey of 2018 by Fred Minnick in Forbes
Nose: Incredibly fruity, the nose opens with strawberry salt-water taffy, Bing cherry, and raspberry but more exotic fruits lurk in the depths: prickly pear, lychee, blood orange, grapefruit marmalade, damson plum, even tomato. The fruits nearly overpower subtle herbaceous notes of pizzelle, Maraschino liqueur, Cynar, and pipe tobacco. Its sweetness is kept in check by a hint of paraffin and scorched earth.
Palate: As fruity as the nose, exhibiting strawberry and rose jam, lychee, Maraschino liqueur, and calvados, balanced by très leches cake, hibiscus, and angelica.
Finish: The theme continues on slowly evolving fruit: guava, watermelon, Pink Lady apples; they’re joined by a touch of paraffin from the nose and a spicy signature of candied chili pepper.
Barrell Craft Spirits "Dovetail Whiskey #3"
One of the coolest blends to come out of Barrell. 10 year Rye finished in Dunn Cabernet barrels and 11 year old Tennessee Bourbon finished in Rum and port barrels. All of these flavors working in tandem to create a buttery and deep whiskey as unique as it is delicious.
Proof count: 123.8
