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.

Sure, Kentucky gets all the press when it comes to Bourbon. And with good reason—nearly 95% of it is produced there. But Bourbon can be made anywhere as long as it's within the United States. Just ask states with budding distilleries like Illinois and New York.
Bourbons have very prominent notes of vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
