Introducing Experimental Batch 017: Apricot Brandy Barrel Finished!
Our distillers are no strangers to off-beat mash bills or unique finishing barrels, but for Batch 017, they brought these two concepts together. Crafted to highlight the fruit-forward characteristics of an alternative grain mash bill, including wheat, spelt, and oat malts, this innovative experiment is finished in rare Turkish apricot brandy barrels for over 3 months. The result highlights the bold synergy between an inventive high malt bourbon and a vibrant fruit brandy finish. Bottled at 102 proof, expect notes of apricot jam, crème anglaise, potpourri, browned butter, toasted oak, and leather.
