Barrell Craft Spirits has unveiled the most recent release from its Barrell Craft Spirits Line, a blend of straight bourbon whiskeys matured for 15 years.
Distilled in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee, this limited release was crafted and bottled in Kentucky at 104.9 proof.
This year’s annual release includes minerals, tart fruits, woodsy spices and nutty notes, the company reports. The addition of water brings out a creaminess which transforms the nose into an experience reminiscent of a hazy IPA.
“We’re thrilled to introduce the third release of bourbon within the Barrell Craft Spirits Line,” says Founder Joe Beatrice. “For this annual release, we identified and blended some exceptional barrels to taste that are defined by absolute balance and deep flavor layering.”
Founded in 2013 in Louisville, KY, BCS selects and blends products that explore different distillation methods, barrels and aging environments, and bottles them at cask strength. Every batch is produced as a limited release, and has a distinct flavor profile.
Beginning this month, Barrell Craft Spirits will make available 12,000 750-ml. bottles of BCS Bourbon at select retailers within the brand’s current 45 U.S. markets and, online via the BCS website at barrellbourbon.com. The suggested retail price is $250, which includes a black storage case.
In addition to bourbon, the Barrell Craft Spirits Line also includes whiskey and rum.
