Barrell Bourbon Batch 033 hits the spot, offering a delicious spicy-sweet mix of flavors bottled at a proof that’s full-flavored, but not hot.

According to Barrell Craft Spirits, “Batch 033 is a marriage of high-rye barrels and high-corn barrels ranging in age from 5 to 9 years old. Two sets of barrels mingled together for two months, then the balance was adjusted for the most optimal combination.”

Barrell Craft Spirits offers consistently high quality products across the board, with each bourbon batch carrying similar undertones and often a blend of bourbons from three different states. Sometimes, a particular batch really hits the sweet spot for my palate, bringing the flavors together in a harmony that really pleases my palate. Batch 033 hits the right spot for me, balancing deliciously sweet butterscotch, caramel, and kettle corn notes with robust baking spices and just the tiniest punch of citrus on the palate. It’s a lively combination of flavors, and at a barrel proof of 116 that’s high, but not too high, the intensity of everything is spot on. If you’re looking for a bold and lively bourbon that balances rich sweet flavors with robust spice notes, Barrell Bourbon Batch 033 is for you.
