Barrell Craft Spirits has released Barrell Bourbon Batch 32.
Batch 32 began with a balance of two sets of barrels: a selection of 5- and 6-year-old barrels with a creamy and tropical profile, the company says, and a selection of 6-, 7- and 10-year-old barrels vatted for their old, woody character.
These two sets of barrels were blended over three months. A small group of spice-driven 7-year-old barrels with notes of cinnamon toast, coffee bean and chocolate were then added to complete the blend.
The result is a rich bourbon with layers of spice and nuttiness, the company reports. The nose brings floral and fresh-fruit notes, with cherry, watermelon and crushed apple. Additional aromatics include cedar and applewood, with a hint of cedar. The palate contains sweet cinnamon, caramel, ginger and boiled peanuts.
Whiskeys in this release distilled and aged in TN, KY and IN.
Barrell Bourbon Batch 32 comes bottled at cask strength: 115.34 proof.
The suggested retail price is $90 per 750-ml. bottle.
