Time to ring in the New Year with a Barrell Bourbon limited edition. Before I moved to Maryland it was impossible for me to find Barrell Bourbon. Now, however, I can walk into the local and usually find a few different bottles on the shelf. So I wasn’t shocked when I found a bottle of the New Year blend awaiting me on New Years Eve.
What is the New Year blend? On their website they explain it thusly:
A selection of 2.5, 5, 7, 9, 10 and 14 year old Straight Bourbon Whiskey barrels
Distilled in Indiana, Kentucky, New York, Tennessee and Texas
Aged in Indiana, Kentucky, New York, Tennessee and Texas
Crafted and bottled in Kentucky
111.2 proof cask strength bottling
Aged in American white oak barrels
So basically it’s a bunch of different bourbons blended together. It’s an exercise in creating something fun and new. As always I am ready to try something fun and new.
