Staff Pick Notes

Well, Barrell has done it again. They've totally exceeded my expectations with this 13 year, single barrel rye. It's heavenly. For a spirit with this much age the initial fragrance is incredibly fresh, as is the burst of corresponding flavors. Lifted aromas of stone fruits like apricot and peach burst out of the glass, along with a note of freshly baked bread. The scents carry through to the flavor profile, with layers of dried mango and a clean caramel sweetness that does not cloy the other essences. Barrel spices are well integrated and its weight on the palate is by no means overbearing. 66.39% ABV? Yes, it's high, but trust me the heat is nothing that a splash of water or a small ice cube won't rectify. My spirits have been lifted indeed!
