In doing some homework on this batch of straight bourbon whiskeys, we can find that Barrell (as always) is creating this product at cask strength. They also list the States of distillation on the label, which is something we whiskey geeks are always looking for.

This release was announced this past summer (June 2020) and is described by Barrell Craft Spirits on their website:
Barrell Bourbon Batch 024 is a marriage of high Rye Bourbons ranging in age from 9 to 15 years old. The 9, 10, and 13-year-old barrels were chosen for their peppery assertiveness, making this “spice box” marriage wonderfully robust yet a little rough around the edges. We refined the blend by adding in citrus forward, lower proof, 15-year-old barrels bit by bit, ensuring that the rye forward base would continue to shine, while delivering a lush mouthfeel.
Let’s grab a pour of this batch and see how the blending process was here. I recently reviewed Barrell Bourbon Batch 023 as well, which is a somewhat similar blend. Let’s see how Batch 024 goes!
