Tasting Notes: The nose is roasted peanuts and brown sugar. There's a mix of nuttiness and spice. It balances nicely with dark cherries and dried figs. The palate mirrors the nose but in reverse. It starts with the dried fruit. Then that taste moves to the candied almonds and allspice. The finish is long. You start to realize this blend is 50% of 13+ year olf bourbon. There are oak and toasted coconut notes. It lingers with saltwater taffy.
About PRS: The Barrell Private Release Series is a project in detailed blending on a scale small enough to allow extreme precision. This is the first time in our company’s history that we have offered “micro” blends to the public.
The Private Release Series lets us exercise our blending expertise while maintaining a single barrel-like scale controlled entirely by hand and by palate. Our goal is always to maximize the best attributes of each component. Every ounce of every ingredient changes the overall character of these blends, as does the barrel that each one is aged in. For that reason, these barrels take months to polish and perfect. While we may be able to replicate the recipe for these releases, the unique nature of each ingredient and the barrel they are married in makes every bottling singularly special.
