The first American vatted Single Malt with a deep and complex nose and palate.

Founded in 2014, Barrell scoops up extra casks of premium Bourbon and Rye and bottles ‘em up at full strength. Each batch is completely different. Sometimes the coolest casks on the market are Tennessee-style Whiskies, sometimes they’re Kentucky Bourbon. The good stuff could be straight, or it could be a finished wood. The point is that they find the best odd lots and “left-overs” that would more likely be tossed into a generic blend and sell it to us in all of their glory.

Some folks hear the word “blended” and think bad things. That’s just not fair — especially in this case. Barrell Vatted American Malt Whiskey is a blend of some of the best single malts from across the United States. American Single Malt producers are doing some of the most innovative work in the field right now, and this “vatted” Whiskey is comprised of some of the best of them. Some of those distilleries wanted to remain anonymous, but there are plenty of names you know, including Balcones, Hamilton Distillers Del Bac, MGP, Harvest Distillery, Santa Fe Distillery, and Kings Country Distillery. The individual Spirits are between 1.5 and 8 years old and the final bottling is an impressive 58.75 ABV.

Smartass corner:
Why is the extra letter “L” in Barrell Craft Spirits? Company founder — Joe Beatrice — just ain’t saying. But he will tell you all day long about his passion for the work that they do to preserve unique orphan casks of American Whiskey.

Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 per cent rye. The grain gives rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. Rye was a big seller before Prohibition. After decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. George Washington distilled rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.

Ratings & Reviews
Brock
Brock,
This is a bourbon with characteristics of a highland scotch. Though the nose is sweet, the palate is much more savory and malty. The finish brings you back to the sweetness and reminds you this is, in fact, an American whisky. Vanilla, butterscotch and toffee definitely at the finish. A very nice blend. I imagine it is favoring more rye judging by the savory and spicy palate. Add a little water and you will open up the sweetness even more at the nose. I detect some maple syrup and vanilla with caramel popcorn. I found the addition of water (2-3 drops in a 1.5 oz) did little to the palate and finish other than opening up the vanilla a bit more. It definitely tames the burn. Adding water doesn’t hurt with this whisky.

Anthony,
Nose provided a nice subtle caramel but initial hit on the palate was harsher then I would have liked. The alcohol comes through too strong and leaves a lingering watery burn in the finish.

Thomas,
Very good. High octane
