Barber Lee "The Wine Country Barrel Pick" Heirloom Corn Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Petaluma, California
The Wine Country’s first ever Single Barrel Bourbon pick comes to you from Barber Lee Spirits in Petaluma, California. With a Mashbill of 80% corn (using the heirloom varieties Hopi Blue and Bloody Butcher) and a 20% combination of malted barely and rye and aged for 3 years this single barrel has so much flavor and richness, it’s hard to believe you’re close to 120 proof. Rich apple fruit coats the palate and brings a fresh juiciness to the Whiskey. Brown sugar combines with a flavor profile I can best describe as peach compote to create a balance of sweetness and fruitiness. Butterscotch adds some more richness and more weight on the palate while bright cherry fruit lightens up the finish.
