Bourbon, Batch 28
Barrell Craft Spirits
Peggy Noe Stevens
Smoky char and oak with toasted marshmallow and molasses. Toasty-nutty tones, coconut macaroon and banana.
Texture has great substance. Wood sugar dances on the tongue with caramel and tobacco. Oriental spices, coconut and banana.
Well-rounded and balanced between the smoke and sugars. Earthy, then fades to a bevy of mixed spices.
This whiskey is playing for keeps on the flavors and has layers to enjoy.
Luscious butterscotch is front and center, with pears and vanilla wafers. Finally, some mildly spiced oak emerges here.
Vanilla custard with apples, butterscotch and caramel pieces. Crushed pecans, roasted corn and sweet oak.
Tongue-wrapping richness assures that the finish has staying power. Oak is sweet at the beginning and dries, but never becomes bitter.
Very fine balance and complexity.
