This is a blend of 5, 7, 8, 9, and 13 year old spirit that is sourced by Barrell from distilleries in Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana. This batch was released as a year end limited edition. It is barreled at the blended cask strength (no dilution of one or any of the constituents).
Honey, caramel, floral vanilla. Peanut butter cup, tobacco, faint ethanol. Rich toffee.
Medium mouth feel, no heat. Sweet, really sweet. Cream, vanilla, toffee, creme brulee. Mild pepper, oak, caramel and tobacco.
Medium to long, with restrained heat. More balance here between the sweetness and the pepper.
This was nice - well balanced with a little sweeter focus.
