overall

Situated on the famed original site of the Old Crow Distillery, Glenns Creek offers both sourced and inhouse distilled products. Stave & Barrel is sourced from MGP, but undergoes a double barrel process at the Glenns Creek Distillery for an undisclosed amount of time. This single barrel variant is full of woody sweet notes throughout the sip. An unbalanced finish derails what would otherwise be a well-rounded sip.

This sample was provided at no cost and no strings attached.
