Nashville Barrel company calls their Small Batch Rye Batch 2 “A duet of ryes”, with the end result being a release containing less than 15,000 bottles. Much like Batch 1, many of the similar fruit and spice traits are present, however the fruit flavors are slightly more pronounced in Batch 2’s sip. Even with this added pronunciation of its fruit notes, the rye still nicely balances these traits with more earthy grounded ones. While the price of admission is slightly high for the resulting sip, Nashville Barrel Company is quickly proving that they have the blending skills to put out a consistent product that will easily please anyone who is willing to give it a go.
