Barrell Bourbon Amburana Cask Finish is an upcoming release from Barrell Craft Spirits.
It is a blend of two different bourbon mashbills sourced from Indiana and Kentucky and aged in barrels with varying char levels. Part of the blend was vatted before it was finished in Amburana casks, allowing the Barrell team to better control and balance the “strong cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and vanilla spice notes” from the finishing barrels, according to the label.
It is expected be bottled at a cask-strength 116.42 proof, without chill filtration.
