Tasting Notes: Nose: This whiskey delivers an incredible amount of spice upfront, cinnamon, red hot, then it's like walking into a coffee shop, coffee, crumb cake, an array of pastries, twinkies (that’s a pastry right?), glazed donut. PALATE: This whiskey doesn’t deviate too far from the nose with the spiced notes starting with cinnamon again, red hot, subtle peppery burn, leather, coffee cake, and cinnamon raisin cookie, frosted donuts with toasted baking spices and nutmeg. The whiskey finishes spicy with cinnamon topped whipped cream, more of the same red hot spice, frosted donut. The
whiskey has tons of spice, is well balanced with coffee house element and pastry-like sweetness that continues to appear and develop as you enjoy it.
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 the 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.
