Bourbon #22, 116.6 Proof, 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 whiskies available without compromise. By definition, the 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 and bottling.
Spirit Sub Type:
Barrell Bourbon Batch 22 is a marriage of two separate and iconic styles of bourbon: classically dry and woody Kentucky bourbon and floral, herbaceous, and sweet Indiana bourbon. The final blend was constructed from four separate lots, each with its own set of nuanced flavors. Much like batches 007, 011, and 013, Batch 022 incorporates the freshness of some carefully chosen younger barrels to bring a more extensive range of flavors and aromas to the table.
Bourbon 022 is crafted from a selection of 5-year-old barrels, distilled in Kentucky and Indiana and crafted and bottled in Kentucky. With a prominent nose of rye grain, saffron, and gentian, the creamy mid-palate speaks of sweet tea and s’mores, with a finish of chicory, cherry, and rhubarb. 58.3% ABV
