Barrell Whiskey American Vatted Malt
This bottling is a blend of exclusively American single malt whiskeys. Barrell Craft Spirits partnered with small and large producers across the country to select whiskeys that express the full diversity of American terroir and style. The resulting blend is remarkable, and they are proud to be the first to showcase the growing category of American single malt in this way. Classic malt whisky flavors evoking fresh meadows and ripe fruits are given an American twist with a bolder oak presence providing sweetness and spice. Hardwood smoke gently builds with each sip.

"This is a blend of single malt whiskeys from a number of U.S. distilleries, and malt indeed shines throughout. On the nose, there's cooked apple and pear, with nutmeg, chamomile, milk chocolate, and salt water taffy, followed by a biscuity sweet palate packed with floral and stone fruit notes, milk chocolate, toasted almonds, cinnamon, and salinity. The dry, round finish has vanilla biscotti, gentle oak, warm almonds, and tobacco leaf." -88pts, Whisky Advocate
