Tasting Notes

"Barrell Bourbon New Year 2018 edition comes in hot at 111.2 proof. While it's perfectly enjoyable that way, a few drops of water will help pull out some nuance, revealing notes of cherry, almond, leather, dark chocolate, and a hint of medicinal flavor. A blend with this many origins is interesting in its own right, and it comes together to make a bold, spicy bourbon that turns in unusual directions."
