Barrell Bourbon Batch 001

Barrell Bourbon Batch 001 on cloth

A complex bouquet of crushed toasted walnuts, honey vanilla and tangerine leaps from the glass. Once in the mouth it is luscious and deep with honey notes accompanying citrus, vanilla and an underlying hint of campfire smoke. The finish is lengthy, complex and slightly sweet.
