Barrell Bourbon Batch 30 has arrived, marking one more milestone for the bourbon mixing behemoth. At this level, we may fill an entire bar with solely Barrell Bourbon batch releases (perhaps we have already got), and we actually wouldn’t complain in regards to the choice, regardless of virtually all of those releases being some mixture of bourbons from Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee. For its thirtieth mix, nonetheless, Barrell is throwing a little bit of a curveball at us with the addition of sourced bourbon shares from Wyoming, whiskey heretofore solely featured within the 2021 New Year launch. (Somebody right me if I’m flawed there.) Let’s see how that changeup compares to the batches that got here earlier than, we could?

One other massive aroma right here, however punctuated by distinctive, toasty wooden notes that come throughout virtually like a cognac with sultry fruit notes: roasted fig, syrupy black cherry, and stewed cinnamon apples. On the palate, there’s an preliminary rush of creamy sweetness that evokes milky chai tea and caramel latte, adopted by a giant, heat hug of butterscotch, toasted coconut, and poached pears. The end is all Almond Pleasure with a beneficiant serving to of cinnamon sugar and lingering, oily notes of orange blossom honey. To not say that these batches had ever gotten boring, but it surely’s good to see that the Barrell workforce can nonetheless shock us. One other strong version to the house Barrell bar.

117 proof.
