Tasting Notes

The team at Barrell has perfected their blending and maturation processes, allowing them to consistently craft unique blends of whiskey as if conjuring lightning in a bottle. This premium release from Barrell Craft Spirits sees its acclaimed Dovetail finish applied to an even older and more refined stock of whiskies than in the award-winning standard expression.

The whiskies in Dovetail Gray Label were distilled in Indiana, Tennessee, & Canada, and were aged in Canada and the US before being finished, blended, and bottled by Barrell Craft Spirits in Louisville, Kentucky. This ester-forward, non-age statement whiskey contains components aged up to 20 years before entering the finishing casks unique to Dovetail—rum, port, and Dunn Vineyards cabernet barrels. Each finishing cask imparts a distinct influence indicative of its origin—from the sweet funk of the blackstrap rum barrels to the jammy notes of the port pipes, to the dark fruit from the California cabernet French oak casks.

The nose leads with green apple, gooseberry, and cranberry with savory walnut, sesame, and leather under the sharper fruit aromas. A robust palate highlights strawberry rhubarb pie, caramel custard, and coconut with herbaceous shiso and fennel provided by the oldest Canadian whiskies in the blend. The finish shows a burst of licorice and molasses which gives way to black tea and bergamot. Impeccably balanced, this inaugural release of Gray Label Dovetail is brimming with a deep, brooding complexity that is simultaneously comforting and rousing. Non-chill filtered; bottled at a cask strength of 65.77% ABV.
