This blend started with 8 barrels. I first started by tasting through all of the barrels and adding one to two descriptors for what I thought were the defining notes of each barrel. From there I started to layout what I thought would be good barrel combo's. I would combine a "spice" barrel with a "toffee" barrel and then taste. After building 8-10 different blends some pronounced flavor notes began to show through. The combination I kept returning to was 16749 "baking spice" and 16593 "stewed apples". After scanning the sheet barrel 16629 "buttered popcorn" seemed like a match. On it's own there was a nice buttery nose but not much to the palate. Once it was added to the blend it enhanced the nose dramatically!
