Barrell Batch #2 Rye Whiskey
Rye Batch 002 is Barrell's second release, expanding on their interpretation of a traditional rye whiskey, combining two very diverse ryes. The first component is a 100% malted rye distilled and aged in Poland for 5 years in new charred #3 oak barrels from World Cooperage. It is then blended with an Indiana high malted barley rye that was aged in Indiana and Kentucky for over 5 years. The Polish Rye is dry, with a rich nutty flavor, and pairs beautifully with the lush Indiana Rye, resulting in a sweet and savory balance of malted chocolate and roasted cashews.
