Another excellent barrel pick from local American whiskey lovers, Whiskey Hunt Australia.
This comes from premium blenders and bottlers Barrell Spirits dubbed "The Drunken Bumblebee", a 7-year-old rye from MPG (Midwest Grain Products of Indiana).
Chosen by a panel of rye whiskey lovers in Australia, they decided upon cask M745 . With a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% malted barley and released at 116.66 proof (57.83%), this is certainly one for purists.
Just 174 bottles in the release.
In their own words this "has all the oak, leather, peppercorn and tobacco you want from a rye, balanced out with vanilla, floral and honey notes that bring another level of incredible depth and complexity."
Barrell Craft Spirits are an independent blender and bottler of bourbon and rye whisky and other spirits based in Louisville, Kentucky. Founded by Joe Beatrice, they have become renowned for uncompromising quality in their bottlings and have been fittingly awarded by a number of competitions. They offer single barrel selections to select customers.
