Stellum Single Barrel Bourbon Lyra B9 - Selected by Seelbach's
Mash Bill: 75/21/4 Corn/Rye/Malted Barley
Proof: 118.18 proof
Tasting Notes: The nose starts with hints of citrus. There's lemon and grapefruit upfront. The nose then moves to sweeter notes of honey with a hint of milk chocolate. It really evolves the more time I spend in the glass. Notes of potpourri and spice begin to come through. The palate is maraschino cherry, honey, and baking spice. It's a classic bourbon palate on steroids. The cinnamon and clove notes start to shine in the back of the palate. The finish is medium and moves nicely from sweet to spice. It's predominately clove and black pepper.
Stellum Bourbon Small Batch finds its flavor in the tension of three Indiana Bourbon mash bills, two of which are high-rye, with the third being almost exclusively corn. Older barrels from both Kentucky and Tennessee are folded in slowly, through a multi-step blending process. This brings added layers of depth and complexity, ultimately allowing us to round out a uniquely Stellum flavor profile. For Stellum Single barrels we were focused on finding the same depth and complexity to one barrel.
