Barrell New Year 2022 Limited Edition Bourbon
New Year. New beginnings. New traditions. Every autumn, Barrell creates a very special blend of bourbons as a toast to the year to come. The New Year Bourbon 2022 is a tribute to the fresh possibilities and sense of renewal that every new year brings. This edition is a blend of a selection of 5, 6, 7, 9, and 14-year-old straight bourbon whiskeys from TN, IN, KY, OH, WY, NY & TX.
The nose is sweet, a little tangy, and shows white chocolate and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. The fruit comes through with nectarine, watermelon rind, and key lime pie. Grassy sugarcane nods toward a freshness not usually seen in such rich bourbon blends. A sturdy wood tannin suits the bold acidity of sour apple candy, tart raspberry, and pineapple. As the palate adjusts, soy milk, banana pudding, and hazelnut streusel soften the impact. Tonka bean and cinnamon bring the first evidence of oak spice. Minerality is remarkably bold, displaying well-salted pretzel, iron, and gunpowder. Bottled at 57.67% abv.
