About Barrell Craft Spirits 15 Year Old Bourbon 2020 Edition
"I started this company to share my passion for unique, high-quality spirits," says Joe Beatrice, founder of the independent bottler Barrell Craft Spirits, whose self-proclaimed goal is to find and curate the best barrels and batches of whiskey and rum, wherever they may be. To preserve the singular characteristics of each batch, Barrell bottles all their whiskeys at cask strength. "The complexity and concentration of flavor is greatest when the whiskey comes right from the barrel," says Beatrice.
With each batch being a limited release, their goal is to "explore different distillation methods, barrels, and aging environments". Their releases have garnered several of the most prestigious awards and won the hearts of bourbon lovers across the globe with whiskey authority Fred Minnick naming it Best American Whiskey of 2018.
Only the best of the best ― the rarest ones that have had the most work poured into them ― get the grey label and gift box treatment, the third release of their 15-year-old Barrell Craft Spirits Bourbon being one of these. Distilled between 2002 and 2005 in Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee, then blended and bottled in Kentucky in 2020, it's a cask-strength 104.9 proof expression with the straight bourbons ranging from 15 to 18 years of age. Aged in charred new oak barrels and bottled without chill filtration, it's an intense, complex, and nuanced spirit deserving of a place on any bourbon lover's shelf.
