NEW BOURBON AND RYE BATCHES ARE HERE
Batch Bourbon 035 is here
Barrell Bourbon Batch 035 hit the ground running with a Gold Medal from the 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and is making its way across the country now
This is a blend of 6, 7, 8, and 13-year-old bourbons. A multi-mashbill blend of 6 and 7-year-old spicy and earthy, high-rye, high-proof, oak forward barrels was combined with a blend of 8-year-old softer, lower-proof barrels with concentrated notes of dark cherry and butterscotch. After mingling for two months, 13-year-old barrels with dominant fruit flavors were layered in. A portion of these barrels had more tropical fruit notes and the other portion showed more dried and candied fruit notes. The resulting bourbon is peppery and intriguing on the nose, and sweet and long on the finish.
Batch Rye is back
We’re thrilled to launch Barrell Rye Batch 004, our first rye batch since 2020, which marks the debut of our new back labels that will become a staple of nearly all our future releases, and further underscores our commitment to informing consumers about what’s in their glass of whiskey.
10-year-old Indiana Rye barrels with notes of brown sugar and a touch of smoke had 5 and 6-year-old barrels layered in for fruit and spice character. 14-year-old Canadian barrels were added for their dry herbal notes. The result is fruit-forward rye with layers of depth. This rye blend highlights rye’s earthier side, featuring notes of tobacco, leather, and mole poblano. Its stewed fruit and wilder savory character recall the syrahs of France’s Rhône valley: blackberry and tapenade on the nose followed by flavors of bresaola and black pepper.
BCS Gray Label Rum
We’ve unearthed a few bottles of our second edition of BCS Gray Label Rum, released back in 2020. This was a 14 year-old blend of Jamaican, Guyanese Demerara, and Barbados Rums. You can find this online here, along with the rest of our Gray Label products, listed now at $159.99.
