Tasting Notes

Appearance: Sugar just beginning to caramelize.

Nose: The nose is opulent, with clear notes of carrot cake and butterscotch pudding. 

Palate: The palate retains a creamy character but incorporates a much bolder tart-cherry acidity and pronounced minerality.

Finish: Rather gentle, returning to the soft, grassy tones from the nose. Green tea, pandan leaf and chocolate mint yield to a final, peppery flourish of grains of paradise.

With a splash of spring water: Notes of lemon drops, coriander, lemon verbena and lemon pith. There’s some spice too, such as nasturtium and parsley. The palate, meanwhile, gains an oily texture and savory edge, reminiscent of rib-eye steak.


92 Points, Editor's Choice - Whisky Advocate

"Licorice, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, raspberry jelly, fragrant wild herbs, whiffs of polished oak, and a hint of bubble gum on the nose. The palate offers strawberry shortcake, allspice, ground chile pepper, and bitter espresso. Water brings out more peppery spice and dark chocolate. Excellent length on the finish, with semi-sweet chocolate cake, plum tart, cherry coulis, and savory spice at the back. Spicy, rich, lively, and flavorful."

"Building off Batch 031, its layers of Ohio, Wyoming, New York, and Texas bourbon on top is what makes this whiskey such a rousing sip. There’s a lot going on with this New Year’s release. On one hand it can be hard to wrap your head around its individual parts, yet Barrell has made it come together as a cohesive whiskey. Despite its many contrasting elements, there’s a balance between its bright summer fruit and its darker fruits, all while featuring an undertow of clove, brown sugar, fudge, and oak spice. Somehow Barrell Craft Spirits pulled it off, Barrell Bourbon New Year 2022 is a dynamic and complex whiskey that will dazzle you with each sip." - Breaking Bourbon
