Review #768 | /r/Bourbon Review #425 – Barrell Bourbon Batch 011

The Schtick: This is batch 11 released by Barrell Bourbon. This is sourced from an undisclosed Tennessee distiller and is barreled at cask strength.

Distiller: Undisclosed Tennessee Distiller

Bottler: Barrell

ABV: 57.4% ABV

Age: 6 Years

Bottle: #3860

Source: Sample

Nose: Corn, musty cardboard, confectioners sugar, ethanol, peanut butter cup. Weird floral vitamin note.

Taste: Think to medium mouthfeel, no real heat. Cream, graham cracker, muted. Some clove and corn.

Finish: Short, hot and fruity. Lots of vanilla and pepper, some mild oak.

Overall: Muted palate, but a bit hot and a little too all over the place. Not bad, but Barrell has shown us they have picked better.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 5
