Nashville Barrel Company Small Batch (Batch 1.1), 50%

Price: $60 Issue: Summer 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons

A combination of 4 year old and 7 year old rye distilled in Indiana, the nose has earthy aromas of pine needles, fresh muddled mint, and dill, in addition to pecan, orange peel, and blueberry pie. The palate is spiced with more pine, some blackberry jam, lemon tart, and clove. Water brings notes of cedar and grapefruit zest, and overall gives this whiskey better cohesion. The finish shows coffee bean and mint oil.
