overall

Founded by James M. Saunders in October, 2020, New England Barrel Company's central mission is to “build the best spirits community one pour at a time.”

New England Barrel Company is still very small, and as a result presumably very selective with the barrels they curate for their small batch and single barrel programs. The particular barrel in review showcases this, punching well above its age and hitting flavor notes that will please just about everyone who tastes it. A satisfying mouthfeel combined with pleasant flavors of raisins, leather, caramel chews, and oak, is going to appeal to most. At $59, it’s a solid recommendation.

The bottle in review is from barrel number 19 and comes from a barrel selected by Gordon’s Wine out of Waltham, Massachusetts.
