This item is out of stock


Barrell Straight Whiskey Batch 009

Batch 009 was distilled in Indiana from a corn/rye/malted barley mash bill.  The whiskey was aged in ex-bourbon barrels in Kentucky for 9.5 years, then finished in sherry casks.  This particular batch is bottled at 123.8 proof.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Golden light seeps out of a slightly thick backdrop. Each swirl of this unctuous nine-and-a-half-year-old Cask Strength whiskey offers radiant droplets saturated with the natural oils and fats.

Nose: Graham cracker crusted late summer peach cobbler with a deeply tantalizing whiff of both Sherry and splashes of wet saddle leather. Uncured Virginia tobacco leaf spring through a veneer of Rainier Cherry jam melting over sizzling hot rye bread.

Palate: First sips are full of sweet honey swirled deeply with fine sherry wine as they deepen and build into surges of steaming hot, slow cooked, hand ground grits.

Finish: Rich and sumptuous flavors reveal themselves behind the folds of the creamy sherry cask finished whiskey. Sips evoke ham biscuits slathered with a mustardy slaw of carrots and raisins, leading to a multi-minute experience that is worth savoring.
