Limited Seasonal Releases

Limited Seasonal Releases: Batch Rye 004, Cask Finishes, New Year Bourbon

Rye Batch 004

10-year-old Indiana Rye barrels with notes of brown sugar and a touch of smoke had 5 and 6 year old barrels layered in for fruit and spice character. 14-year-old Canadian barrels were added for their dry herbal notes. The result is a fruit-forward rye with layers of depth. 57.85% cask strength bottling

Barrell Cask Finish Series: Amburana and Tales of Two Islands.

Amburana Finish: Amburana casks are challenging to work with, true blending expertise is required to enhance the bourbon with Amburana and maintain balance. This release is a bourbon blend of two mashbills with different char levels finished in Amburana casks. A vatting of individual casks without finishing was layered in to add depth, richness and complexity, ensuring the bourbon shines through first and foremost. 58.21% cask strength bottling.

Tale of Two Islands Bourbon: In 2018 Barrell produced the legendary Tale of Two Islands Rum: a Jamaican Rum matured in peated Islay single malt barrels. Those empty casks have been used to finish a blend of straight bourbons. The sweetness of the rum and the smokiness of the Islay casks mingle together with the underlying bourbon that continues the Tale of Two Islands. 59.11% cask strength bottling.

Premium Gray & Gold Label

Gray and Gold Label are limited release series that elevate Barrell’s ultra-premium range of Bourbon, Dovetail and Seagrass, showcasing the ultimate expression of craftsmanship and flavour, produced exclusively from their library of rare aged barrels. The Gray Label range is produced from their library of barrels aged from 10-20 years with unique mashbills and barrel finishes for each expression. The Gray Label range is the ideal balance of aged whiskeys that produce unmatched layers of flavour and complexity. The Gold Label range is produced from their exclusive library of barrels aged over 15 years; a result of patience and craftsmanship. Age alone does not meet the standard for the Gold Label range, it requires a balance of barrel age and flavour to produce the complex, rich, full flavour notes required for this ultra-premium range.
