  • Intro:

    This is a pretty interesting release. This is a single cask of rye picked by Bourbon Street Wine and Spirits from Barrell. It's 14 years old, the provenance is unknown (to us) and it's a bruiser at 73.06% ABV. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Rich apple, brown sugar, some toffee and nougat. Sweet overall, faint peanut but very little. Light and fruity.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouth feel. Hot, bitter, varnish. Interesting earthy quality, loaded with pepper and allspice. Bitter oak and earth. Some astringency, mild funk note like a mild hop influence.

  • Finish:

    Short, but punishing and rough. The dirty, earthy astringency and musty varnish note isnt welcome, and covers up the delightful notes from the nose that I liked so much.

  • Overall:

    Barrell. I thought we were friends. What are you doing.

  • Score:

    3
