De Wine Spot: Barrell Craft Spirits Tasting
De Wine Spot, Brooklyn, NY
We are tasting BARRELL Bourbon Batch 6 and Whiskey Batch 1. As always, these tastings are free!
An impeccably balanced spirit rested to maturity for 8 years in new American oak. Aged low in the rick house for a rounder, mellower profile that marries fruit and buttery notes with the spice and comfort of charred oak. Hand churned buttercream and freshly dipped pralines in the nose invite deeper notes of baked peach cobbler and pan toasted chestnuts. The 122.9 proof heat dissipates quickly into savory bursts of brown butter dipped cornbread lathered in stone fruit preserves. Elongated notes of still steaming cinnamon toast lightly dusted with raw sugar. Brightly aromatic tangerine and blood orange beckon with each sip eventually leading to a lengthy caramel coated popcorn finish.
Mash bill: 70% corn, 26% rye, 4% malted barley
Distilled in Tennessee
Bottled at 122.9 proof
Aged for 8 years, 6 months in charred white oak barrels
