Barrell Bourbon "K&L Exclusive" 14 Year Old Cask Strength Single Barrel #E522 Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1426622

Barrell has firmly established themselves as the premier independent bottler of American spirits. It's casks like this one that showcase how they did it. While there is a plethora of aged Tennessee whiskey on the market at the moment, there is certainly an enormous variation in the quality of those casks. Careful selection by Barrell and a subsequent selection by us at K&L has led to this beauty being bottled. At 14 years old it really shows its age in all the best ways. It's dark and spicy without being overly tannic. The sweet brown sugars have caramelized perfectly into a robust and complex whisky expressing notes of chocolate, citrus, and a lively herbacous note to be savored. Clocking in at nearly 108 proof it's a powerful whiskey, but not overly hot. (-Andrew Whiteley, K&L Spirits Buyer)

This a big and full bodied whiskey. The nose is expressive with subtle vanilla undertones. In the mouth it is lusty and plush, concentrated and complex. The hints of vanilla continue to be present. With a touch of water it becomes softer and slightly more subtle. There is a long finish.

Sweet scents of fruit struck me right away - tangerines, apples, and almost a hint of banana - followed by a subtle fragrance of roasted nuts. On the palate, ample caramel apple and more candied nuts come in just ahead of delicate honeysuckle and vanilla. I enjoy how youthful and dynamic this feels, especially in contrast to the savory wood of other 14 year-old bourbons of late. Big fleshy fruit, chalky minerality and enchanting aromas make this a slam dunk.

This was truly a unique bourbon for me. Admittedly, I haven't tried too many of the Barrell offerings but am quite familiar with the level of demand, so when I saw the sample come in for this I was quite excited. This bottling has also passed inspection by not one, but two discerning buyers (first those lovely people at Barrell and subsequently our own K&L buyers). On the nose I got stale cherries mixed with subtle pear, oak spice, clove, light orange peel and fig newtons. The palate was surprising smooth for the proof, blending spiced cherry crisp with a sweet, purple hard candy note that reminded me of Willy Wonka's Gobstoppers. The finish was a bit nondescript but had a subtle sweetness and smooth, almost cooling ride out.

This new single barrel from Barrell Bourbon is BIG on spice and fruit, like a dessert you'd bake in autumn or winter. Cinnamon apples and cobbler come out on the nose with candied citrus and toasted oak. A nice supple mouthfeel is balanced with the spices which hit different points on my palate and light up my cheeks. Rich vanilla coats the tongue before a menthol medicinal finish.

Bottled exclusively for K&L and made at George Dickel, this Bourbon is a great addition to our Tennessee whiskeys. Bottled at cask strength, this guy shows lots of chocolate, muscovado and apple crumble notes on the nose. Though it is rich and sweet in the mouthfeel, the cask strength nature keeps it from being cloying and offers a toasted sourdough element. The 14 year aging process has help it to blend seamlessly and given spice and length. A touch of citrus at the end gives it an unexpected lift and leaves you wanting just a little bit more.

This is a sophisticated cask strength bourbon. While it carries classic big bourbon aromas, it's incredibly well integrated and smooth--dark, rich and woody. The foundation deep aromas of cereals, burnt sugar, and licorice, with pretty delicate aromas of dried brush, sweet spices and fresh mint. It has a dense weighty body and concentrated flavors that match up to the cask strength ABV. Powerful, smooth, and elegant.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
