Light tanned leather with a nice honey glow.

Big notes of nuts and oak up front that goes right into Madagascar vanilla, peaches, light caramel and a tad bit of ethanol at the end.

The sweet and nuttiness of this bourbon reminds me of being at the circus with a bag of peanuts and cotton candy. It dances on the palaet with with big notes of pecan and the caramel from the nose comes through lightly as it did on the nose with a slight grassy rye finish that isn’t abrasive at all.  The sweetness of corn and the nuttiness is a wonderful sign that the blend of these two bourbons was well executed and not just an afterthought.

Medium finish that’s rich, luscious and buttery with a slight hug at the end.
The way it lingers in the background is a pleasant reminder of how wonderful this bourbon is and keeps you coming back for more.

Over all this is another lovely batch by the folks over at Barrell Bourbon. I’ve been extremely open in post reviews about how much I enjoy their products. If you’re new to the Barrell line or you’re looking for a great gift I would spring for this in a heartbeat. If you’re a veteran drinker of this line and you have batch 015, give this one a taste before you dive in as they are cousins in flavor.
