Barrell 13yr Canadian Rye Batch L940

  • Distiller:


  • Bottler:


  • ABV:


  • Age:

    13 Years

  • Intro:

    This is a sourced rye bottled for Barrell Spirits. It was distilled at Alberta in Canada, and was aged for 13 years before being bottled at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering.

  • Nose:

    Honey, pepper, orange peel. Fresh baked bread, oak, some caramel. Lot more ethanol than I expected.

  • Taste:

    Thick and rich but hot. Copper penny, honey, oak, orange peel. Caramel, really powerful rye spice. Clove, wintergreen, brown sugar and maple.

  • Finish:

    Long, but really hot, sweet and loaded with spice. Really herbal and peppery, loads of clove. Faint molasses and brown sugar.

  • Overall:

    I liked this, but wish it would have stuck with some more of the bread-y, sweet, caramel forward notes from the nose and beginning of the palate. The herbal notes really stepped in with an overpowering presence that I felt left it a bit unbalanced.

  • Score:
