Barrell Seagrass, Barrell Craft Spirits

The idea behind Barrell Craft Spirits is to “explore the unique effects of different distillation methods, barrels, and aging environments and bottle them at cask strength.” This is accomplished through outstanding relationships within the tightly knit whiskey community and sourcing the best spirits available without compromise. Bottlings of Barrell Spirits are limited in nature with new releases hitting the market frequently. Barrels are sourced from around the country (and the world) & shipped to Barrell’s facilities in Kentucky for additional aging, blending, and bottling.

Tasting Notes

This blended rye is unlike any rye previously released by Barrell Craft Spirits, and indeed, unlike any other rye on the market. Rye whiskey distilled in both Canada and Indiana have been aged in a combination of casks that previously held Martinique Rhum, Malmsey Madeira, and Apricot Brandy. Blended and bottled in Kentucky, the resulting, luscious spirit evokes days and nights spent next to the ocean and is complex in its sensory experience. Sun-ripened apricot and tarragon on the nose transition to a sweet and round palate of more apricot, apple, and overripe pear, amontillado sherry, fresh grapefruit, and rosehip; all is focused with a sharp, rye backbone and a haunting finish full of salinity and daydreams of the seaside. Non-chill filtered and 59.2% ABV.
