PRIVATE RELEASE RUM
The Barrell Private Release Series is a project in detailed blending on a scale small enough to allow extreme precision. This is the first time in our company’s history that we have offered “micro” blends to the public.
The Private Release Series lets us exercise our blending expertise while maintaining a single barrel-like scale controlled entirely by hand and by palate. Our goal is always to maximize the best attributes of each component. Every ounce of every ingredient changes the overall character of these blends, as does the barrel that each one is aged in. For that reason, these barrels take months to polish and perfect. While we may be able to replicate the recipe for these releases, the unique nature of each ingredient and the barrel they are married in makes every bottling singularly special.
Each release of our Private Release Rum is a unique blend of rums from Barbados, Jamaica, and Guyana, as well as Rhum Agricôle from Martinique. Once created, these blends are married in single casks, many of which were previously used for other spirits and/or wines.

Richard Thomas of The Whiskey Reviewer writes that sipping Barrell Whiskey Private Release AH14 was reminiscent of "eating a caramel pear [...], albeit one with a more candied character than the norm."
