Barrell Craft Spirits - Vantage Cask Strength Finished In Mizunara, French, Toasted American Oak Blended Bourbon Whiskey
Vantage highlights the blending expertise that defines Barrell Craft Spirits and is an exciting step forward in our never-ending journey to take bourbon to new heights.
Our unique vantage point in the whiskey world, combined with a passion for experimentation and nuance, has inspired us to produce a blend with impeccable balance and depth of flavor. Barrell Vantage is the result of deliberately pairing specifically identified bourbons with carefully selected cooperage, giving rise to a final expression that focuses on the subtle flavors and their compounding profiles.
Palate: Sweet and oily with a pronounced espresso note. It’s
pleasantly rich on the tongue, which obscures much of the
tannin – surprising given how much wood is present. The
French oak’s robust spice notes inflect a maple syrup sweetness.
Finish: Green grapes and red plums burst above the barrel
notes for the first time. It’s spicy, too, with za’atar, crystallized
ginger and Szechuan peppercorns.
