Despite bright notes of passionfruit and geranium, the nose settles down considerably. The fresh notes are now candied -- papaya, orange peel, and ginger. Liege waffle and beef tallow lay a rich foundation. The palate grows creamier, displaying french vanilla ice cream, pawpaw, and orris root

"Demure out the gate, a splash of water brings out floral and bright aromas of candied orange blossoms, Meyer lemon confit, licorice root, and lemon pepper. Well-integrated flavors bloom on the palate, displaying golden fig, spiced orange peel, and a long, slowly tapering pepper-laced finish."
Best Rye Of 2021 - Breaking Bourbon
"Who would have thought blending together the flavors of rye, rum, madeira, and brandy into one product would actually work? Even then who would have the guts to take on such a wild concept? Blending is what Barrell Craft Spirits has built their reputation on, and as they've grown they’ve shown a willingness to push the boundaries of blending further and further. In more ways than one, Barrell Seagrass was a gamble, but it was one that paid off. There isn’t anything on the market quite like Barrell Seagrass, and while that may make it a challenging sip for some, others will revel in its inventiveness and eccentricity. It was a bold risk that resulted in a wildly dynamic pour that pushes the boundaries of American whiskey and challenges others to do the same."
