Featured Whiskey: BARRELL BOURBON BATCH 005

 

$20 Full Pour $10 Half Pour

Barrell Bourbon is sourced bourbon released periodically in sequentially numbered batches. The company’s mantra is to seek out unique whiskeys and release them at barrel proof, striving to offer no two batches that are alike.

 

This particular batch has a mash bill of 70% corn, 26% rye, and 4% malted barley. The bottle in review is from Batch 005, bottle number 4444.

Subtle yet youthful with a slight burn, though less than expected considering the proof. Corn is most prevalent, with hints of caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, and burnt wood fighting vigorously to pull through. The scents are good, just surprising weak overall.

 

Cinnamon sticks and burnt brown sugar take the forefront. Nestled behind them are peaches, seasoned oak, kettle corn, and a noticeable pop of Atomic Fireball candy. It coats the mouth completely with a viscous mouthfeel. Overall well-rounded with a perfect amount of burn, though still approachable for the proof. It’s quite enjoyable and has a lively and youthful pep.

 

Long lasting and quite delicious. Seasoned oak becomes more prevalent here giving the first inclination towards the eight-plus years spent in the barrel. Cinnamon spice lingers unobtrusively, balanced by a dollop of sugary sweetness which dissipates in unison with the cinnamon spice and oak. An outstanding finish overall.
