Barrell Bourbon Batch 005

124.7 proof Aged for 8y 4m

I just picked up this bottle today on its debut in Total Wine stores in California. I’ve heard about this from buddy’s on the east coast for some time and now it’s finally here! The nose on this whiskey is so incredibly complex. I smelled floral scents, with leather and wood, vanilla, chocolate and even some cherry cobbler. No joke, this whiskey is worth the price just to smell it. The taste is just as incredible with a cool fore that gives way to cherry pie and as you swallow cinnamon coats the back of the tongue. The finish is long with flavors of oak and butter and finally, at the very end I got the spiciness I was expecting from this cask strength bourbon. This is easily one of the smoothest bourbons over 120 proof I’ve ever had, but that doesn’t mean that the complexity of the cask strength is lost. They really hit a home run with this one.
