Barrell Bourbon Batch 024 starts off with an impressive array of scents that balances sweet and savory with heavy oak and a punch of sweetness. The palate in turn transitions into a heavier ordeal of darker and richer flavors. The finish takes it a step further, leaning into pepper and bitterness. This isn’t one of the sweet and fruity batches from Barrell that they’re known for, but instead goes in the opposite direction. Providing a nice contrast to those batches, Batch 024 is yet another impressive blend by Barrell Craft Spirits that also makes for a great cigar bourbon.
