Barrell Infinite Barrel Project (February 12, 2018)
Barrell Craft Spirits // Multiple Countries
This whiskey project is a take off from the infinity bottle that some whiskey collectors and enthusiasts around the world create. Pouring the last ounce or two of their whiskey as they finish a bottle into a seperate bottle creates their own unique blend. Barrell has done that with this whiskey which, for this batch, contains: Tennessee whiskey & rye; Indiana whiskey finished in oloroso sherry butts; Indiana rye; 100% Polish malted rye finished in curaçao barrels; Scotch whisky; Irish whiskey. Each release will be different as new whiskeys will be added to the batch as needed. The bottling date will mark the new batch. Bottled at cask strength of 59.65% ABV.
Other WhiskeyA spirit distilled from a mash of grain(s) at less than 95% ABV, bottled at no less than 40% ABV. The product must have characteristics, taste, and aroma generally attributed to whiskey
"To say this is an unusual blend of whiskeys is an understatement. The American components seem to take the central role, with pronounced influence from charred new American oak. These are backed with rye spice, a little smoke, cherry, orange peel, and dark chocolate. At its high proof, a few drops of water definitely help open up its complexity. It's a weird blend, but fans of spicy bourbons and ryes will likely enjoy how it all comes together."
