  • Excerpt: At the end of the day, Barrell Bourbon Batch 024 is a really good whiskey. It’s a little outside of the mainstream bourbon profile by a little bit, but I really enjoyed this pour.

  • Excerpt: This isn’t one of the sweet and fruity batches from Barrell that they’re known for, but instead goes in the opposite direction. Providing a nice contrast to those batches, Batch 024 is yet another impressive blend by Barrell Craft Spirits that also makes for a great cigar bourbon.

  • Excerpt: This is fascinating - there's so much going on, but it's a bit disjointed. Lovers of sweet, dessert forward drams will be a fan but there is a bit of ethanol to work through to get the toffee brownie sundae prize.

  • Intro:

    Barrell Bourbon Batch 024 is a blend of age statements all over the place - from 9 years to 15 years old. Bottled at a pleasant 113.9 proof, this is certain to have plenty of flavor.

  • Nose:

    Effervescent and complex - brown sugar, brown butter, some tobacco, pepper and a hint of clove. Lots going on.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate, though with some heat as well. Not punishing, but the ethanol isn't shy. Brown sugar returns to team up with cocoa, clove, hint of pepper and a rich toffee note on the back palate.

  • Finish:

    Powerful finish with so much going on. It's a hot exit, plenty of ol' Kentucky hug, but the dessert notes are inescapable. Cocoa, brown sugar, faint old tobacco.

  • Overall:

    This is fascinating - there's so much going on, but it's a bit disjointed. Lovers of sweet, dessert forward drams will be a fan but there is a bit of ethanol to work through to get the toffee brownie sundae prize.
