Barrell Cask Strength Straight Bourbon Whiskey Batch #007
Bottled at cask strength of 122.4 proof, this spectacular bourbon earned a score of 98 points at the 2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.
“I started this company to share my passion for unique, high-quality spirits,” says Joe Beatrice, the founder of Barrell Bourbon Co, whose self-proclaimed goal is to select and bottle the finest small-batch, craft-distilled bourbon. “At Barrell Bourbon, we support the time-honored traditions of distilling, a patient art designed to give you a better tasting bourbon. At every stage of bourbon making, subtle choices are made that impact the whiskey. Though all bourbons are made from the same basic ingredients, it's the choices the master distiller makes that shapes his creation.” Barrell Bourbon Batch #007 is made from a mash of 70% corn, 25% rye and 5% malted barley. After the grains are sourced, they are mashed and fermented before being distilled in Tennessee through a copper still. The bourbon is then matured for five years in #4 charred, American white oak barrels. The intense southern heat causes the wooden barrel staves to expand and contract, interacting with the whiskey and contributing notes of saddle leather, burning tobacco and barbecue as it matures. Once the bourbon has matured, it is bottled at cask strength of 122.4 proof without the use of chill-filtration (chill filtration removes the cloudiness that is natural to bourbon, but also removes the fatty acids and esters that contribute to the whiskey's overall flavor and complexity). As a result, the bourbon has an aroma of green melon, peaches, plums and aged oak. The palate arouses notes of blackberry cobbler, cornbread and figs, and leads to an incredibly smooth finish accented by smoked meats, Twinkies and fresh berries. Barrell Straight Bourbon Whiskey earned a score of 98 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge in 2016, which was the second-highest score in the entire competition. Pick up a bottle today!
