Barrell Bourbon (Batch 006), 61.45%

Price: $90 Issue: Winter 2015 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Less driving aroma than Batch 005;lower floor? Both are a mashbill of 70/26/4% corn/rye/malt. More corn and cinnamon and bread dough in the nose here. A lot like 005, but more sweet cornmeal, less spice, less height in the mouth, and the finish is sweeter and longer. Might be that farmer's younger brother; this one's only 8 years old. Still good, a bit less complex. Sourced whiskey.
