A basket brimming with tropical and orchard fruits lies at the heart of this juicy whiskey, with prominent tones of ripe apricot from the brandy casks. The tropical notes are kept in check by a broad array of spicy and herbaceous rye aromas and complemented by the delicate florals of grassy, Martinique rhum. With a splash of water, the oxidized Madeira notes emerge, candying the fruit and bringing out an earthiness on the palate.
|Many exceptional whiskeys never reach the discerning palates of those who would most appreciate them. Barrells mission is to find and curate the best barrels and batches of whiskey, wherever they may be. Left alone, this product would likely be forgotten or blended with other whiskeys, forfeiting its unique flavor and style. To preserve the singular characteristics of each batch, we bottle straight from the barrel. Nothing added, nothing removed, exactly as we first experienced it. We take pride in our small part of preserving and presenting new and unique whiskeys to the people who enjoy them most.
Unlike traditional distilleries, we are not tied to recreating a single recipe or style. Every barrel and every batch we bring to you will be different. Barrell thrives on and embraces this freedom. Unlike certain bottlers and blenders, we have no illusions as to our place in the industry. The unpredictability of barrel aging is something to celebrate, not stifle. We, in essence, provide the stage on which the whiskey may speak for itself.
