Barrell Craft Spirits Bourbon 15 Year Review

In Bourbon Whiskey Reviews by Leave a Comment

When I saw that Fred Minnick rated this Best American Whiskey of 2018, I knew I’d have to check it out. Either I’d be the cool kid who got to say he was terribly wrong, or I’d be the cool kid who snagged a bottle just in time. So I got a bottle and couldn’t wait to open it with some friends. The first thing I noticed was all the fruit on the nose and the prominent Dickel presence. Then the creamy, full mouthfeel. It coated the mouth so nicely. The finish was long and balanced with sweet, spicy, and bitter. I was hooked. Every time I go back to it, I find other flavors. After I read Barrell’s notes, I found more of the flavors they had listed.
