Barrell Armida

Barrell Armida, Barrell Craft Spirits

Barrell Armida, Barrell Craft Spirits
  • A blend of three straight bourbon whiskies finished separately in Pear Brandy, Jamaican Rum, and Sicilian Amaro Casks; crafted and bottled in Kentucky by Barrell Craft Spirits
  • Evoking northeast orchard fruit in the bloom of summer and autumn, Barrell’s founder, Joe Beatrice, named this blend after his mother, who had a farm in the region
  • Honeyed and cereal-grain forward with the dried fruit notes of an old cognac; cola and Chartreuse-like herbs play on the edges of the palate and bittersweet molasses leads into a dry, mineral finish
  • Non-chill filtered; 56.05% ABV (ABV may vary slightly batch to batch)

Barrell Armida began as an exercise in making a dream whiskey, chasing the flavors and aromas Barrell Craft Spirits prizes most in whiskey, masterfully using the art of blending to tease out flavors living on the edges of perception and bringing them to the fore. The result, after a year of intrepid experimentation, is a whiskey displaying the spice and orchard fruit so beloved within the category, amplified by an elegantly robust nature befitting BCS.
