Tasting Notes: Nose: This whiskey is a literal cookie jar, tons of sweet sweet sugar notes, and several forms of the cookie, from raw cookie dough to mellow spiced ginger snap, some bitter chocolate makes an appearance for chocolate chip cookie fans, then the vanilla starts to appear and develop starting with real vanilla and vanilla custard leading to a vanilla extract element. PALATE: This whiskey sends a few strong notes on the nose all leaning towards sweet and the palate doesn’t disappoint leading with a creamy texture, buttery notes followed by bitter cacao, toasted coconut, vanilla ice cream, brown sugar, dark cherry, marzipan, peach cobbler, charred marshmallow, and toasted wood notes. Long finish with airy notes of cream, butter, toasty elements, buttered biscuit.
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.
