Barrell Bourbon Batch #12

$ 90

Batch 012 is a high rye bourbon comprised of 9-year-old barrels and selected old bourbon stocks, most of which were aged in the lower sections of the rick house. This gentler aging style makes Batch 012 a fruit-forward bourbon that shows its spice in the mid-palate, and its drawn out complexity in a long, layered finish.

Sumptuous and lush, Batch 12 fills the mouth with late summer fruit jam and dollops of fresh whipped cream on hot brioche bread pudding. The multi-minute finish is rich with chocolate and heady rye notes

  • Appearance: Deep amber at the core melting to rose gold and brightly polished copper, rimmed by golden edges marbled with wildflower honey.
  • Nose: Elaborate and indulgent nose of delicious orange curd, strawberry, and bursts of sea foam, with licks of pumpkin pie and wet Spanish saddle leather.
  • Palate: Creamy textures abound with luxurious dabs of fresh whipped cream spooned over long simmered hot chocolate.  English summer ale at the top of the tongue gives rise to mid-range notes of crushed Oreo cookie leading into the 108.5 proof finish.
  • Finish: Minced cigar and pipe tobacco meld with slowly cooked summer peach pie.  Hints of sea smoke, crushed salt-slicked rocks, and pork cracklings round out the finish.
  • With a few drops of water: Softer still than without, velvety with notes of sweet butter melted over charred corn on the cob.
