The Barrell Private Release Series is a project in detailed blending on a scale small enough to allow extreme precision. Every ounce of every cask changes the overall character of these blends, as does the barrel in which each is aged. Each release is blended slightly differently and married in single casks, many of which were previously used for other spirits and/or wines. DJX1 was finished in ruby port casks, a style of fortified wine admired for its acidity and high-toned red fruit notes.
