With the standard Starlight Carl T. Huber’s Small Batch Bourbon already leaning towards an oaky flavor profile, I wouldn’t have expected the company to then double barrel it. It seemed like a risky endeavor, but to my surprise, it made for a better product. It’s still very oaky, but the double barrel brings forward much more baking-related flavors and a surprise robustness in flavor. Despite a twinge of youthfulness, it’s still a solid sipper.
