    One of the best new bourbon releases in 2017, alongside Four Roses Al Young. Barrell never released a better batch (bourbon) so far.

    In the glass, Batch 006 is a mahogany or bronze shade, quite dark and rich in appearance. The nose is the best part of Batch 006. Asian pear, plum, peach, exotic fruits all around. Significant oak gave the nose a firm framework for those sweeter flavors. Just a slight hint of singing alcohol, to be expected with such a powerful bourbon. Unfortunately, that's followed by a bit of a letdown. Batch 006 has a fruity entry, consistent with the nose, then some toffee, plums, brown sugar, heather, and ginger. But the notes don't punch with power, if that makes any sense, a particularly odd realization given the proof. Batch 006 had something of the "hole in the palate" sensation, which is a strange turn of phrase that I've seen in other reviews and have come to understand after trying a lot of different whiskies. There comes a point in the flavor progression where you expect the experience to amp up (it's kind of a, "Now for the guitar solo!" moment). Only a few bourbons rise to the challenge, and those are the true superstars. I don't think this bourbon quite hits that high water mark. On the plus side, it does finish for days and is quite complex. I get rye spice, cherry candy, and lots of oak, with a ton of warmth as it travels down the throat. However, the lasting final note from it is a grassy, slightly bitter flavor that I associate with younger cask-strength whiskies.
