Despite each batch being unique and spanning a range of distilleries going into each batch, Barrell Bourbon has proven to be reliable, demonstrating high quality with each batch. Batch 028 zeroes in on a tighter age range than many other batches, including just 10 and 11 year old barrels. The higher age shows through, with evidence of oak and balance throughout. It drinks on the spicier side, with complimentary fruit notes adding balance to the blend. While it may not offer the complexity of Batch 027, it will surely please Barrell fans seeking out a spicy, fruity, and well-aged sip.
