Barrell Dovetail Whiskey
Imagine the joy and wonder of a child opening a mysterious, age-old treasure chest. That's what Barrell Dovetail Whiskey offers — a treasure trove of flavors waiting to be uncovered. Meticulously blended and refined, it delivers intricate notes of dried fruits, toasted nuts, and a splash of port wine.
It's not just a whiskey; it's an adventure for your palate, revealing new layers with every sip.
Rose gold with highlights of worn copper.
Opens with mature aromas both sweet (canelé, panna cotta, crème de noyaux) and savory (walnut oil, leather). This is followed quickly by a vast array of fruit derived both from the spirit (smoked apricot, grapefruit peel) as well as the cask treatment (sloe gin, damson jam). The aroma is high toned, pungently floral and herbaceous, with subtle, balancing pops of minerality.
Darker (cocoa, molasses, burnt marshmallow) and spicier (cola, nutmeg, Tellicherry peppercorn) than the nose, an effect well-complemented by the cask treatment and rendered more complex by the savory and herbaceous themes running throughout.
A sweet and elegant signature of rose jelly, chestnut honey, and Pineau des Charentes that also features hazelnut, eucalyptus, and Corsican mint.
