Nashville Barrel Company is known for offering their hand selected barrels to individuals and groups to select and call their own. While this is still the core offering for the company, they recently released their own small batch product as well.
Batch 1 presents an easy sipping flavor profile that provides a nice mix of fruit and earthy flavors. This makes it pretty easy to assume where this is sourced from, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing at all. While the sip won’t blow you away, what it does do is draw you back in for more and more. Additionally, its flavor profile provides enough flexibility to drink neat or for a more fun, albeit expensive, rye-based cocktail. Nashville Barrel Company Small Batch Rye Whiskey Batch 1 is easy to appreciate, and thanks to its manageable 100 proof, is a good rye for whiskey drinkers of all levels.
