A wonderful blending experiment gone absolutely right.
Barrel Craft Spirits, a resident of Louisville, KY, has their eyes trained on unique and matured, cask-strength Whiskey and Rum. They source only the finest expressions of the two Spirits and carefully blend them into new untold stories. What they do is explore various methods of distilling, search for different types of barrels and maturing environments. Every batch is unique, unmistakable and limited. The independent blender and bottler has been winning awards left and right, from Whisky Advocate to San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Their Whiskey-Rum specialization comes to life in Barrell Dovetail, a helluva blend of two Whiskeys: a 10YO Whiskey distilled in Indiana and finished in Dunn Vineyards Cabernet casks; and a 11YO Bourbon made in Tennessee with a double finish in black strap Rum barrels and LBV Port Pipes. It's obviously a flamboyant blend - and strong, too! It comes at 122.9 proof cask-strength with a rich and smooth flavor profile. It's an imaginative experiment gone absolutely right, giving us one of the most impressive and unique blend at the moment.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
Sweet aromas of molasses and raisins with a hint of anise, and a touch of heat.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Molasses translate beautifully to the palate, accompanied by notes of cane sugar, dark cherries and a hint of barrel char.
Peppery spice and heat are followed by dark fruit. Long and warming finish with a lovely aftertaste.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Barrell Dovetail Cask Strength Whiskey and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
