Barrel Seagrass

Kentucky-based Barrell Craft Spirits has added Barrell Seagrass to its portfolio, a blend of American and Canadian rye whiskeys finished in three different cask types.

To create the new expression, each ingredient in the blend has been finished separately in Martinique rhum agricole casks, apricot brandy casks, and Madeira barrels. The components were then blended together to create Barrell Seagrass.

Maturation in the three distinct cask types has given the expression aromas of honeydew melon, plum and apricot. The palate is said to be full of classic rye whiskey flavours paired with pear, lychee and white grapefruit.

Bottled at 59.2% ABV, Barrell Seagrass is priced at US$89.99.
