Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Barrell Craft Spirits LLC ~ Barrell Craft Spirits

Nose: White grapefruit, and red currant illustrate a classic fruity whiskey aroma just slightly influenced by cabernet. Dunn Vineyards classic stewed cherry, sarsaparilla, and creme de menthe float by. Assorted jams such as raspberry and white grape are suggestive of Port’s influence along with espresso.Palate: Bright citric acid lights up the taste buds. The Canadian whisky and varied maturation create a complex textural experience. An opening of strawberry rhubarb pie leads into lemonade as the tartness builds. It is then overtaken by creamed honey and marshmallow. The evolution concludes with the classic spices of Indiana whiskey – herbs and pine. Finish: Ginger ale and panela explode onto the scene, evocative of the rum casks. As they fade, a fruitier side combines with tropical notes to deliver ripe mango and candied pineapple. The finish is also just touched by the Cabernet’s cranberry juice and slate.
