On Monday, American whiskey blender and bottler Barrell Craft Spirits announced the release of Barrell Bourbon Batch 34, a blend of bourbon whiskeys distilled in Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana and ranging from 6 to 15 year of age.

Barrell started with high-corn 8-year-old barrels as the base of this release, then added high-rye barrels and finished by mixing in 10- and 15-year-old barrels.

Bottled at 114.62 proof, Barrell Bourbon Batch 34 will sell for a suggested retail price of $90.

Barrell Bourbon Batch 34 Tasting Notes, Via the Brand

Appearance: Copper with rose gold highlights

Nose: Eggnog and madeleines set the stage. Dry, hard cider integrates a range of florals such as elderflower and violet. Over time, the fruit transitions to a more cooked character, displaying dried apricot, candied orange peel, and mulled cider.

Taste: Blackcurrant jam and grape soda start the palate off with focus and depth. More classic notes of cinnamon donut, warm cola, and pecan pie emerge. Fresh notes of green grape and Seville orange are followed by umami, and salt.

Finish: A modest amount of sandy tannin sustains notes of shiso, licorice root, and fudgy peanut butter cup through a lengthy finish. There is an additional pop of iron and slate.

With a splash of spring water: Grows initially quite perfumed as volatiles blow off, smelling of petrichor, jasmine tea, and apple cider vinegar. When it settles, a deep rancio character comes out – leafy and nutty.
