Already an established force in the world of blending, Barrell Craft Spirits has demonstrated its finishing prowess with a series of creative releases that marry different cask types together. Vantage is the most recent, and to us, the most successful. The nose has a bake shop sweetness, with aromas of sugar cookie, nutty chocolate brownies, and Funfetti cake, plus earthy dried tobacco leaves and strawberry candies underneath. The creamy palate delivers rich chocolate, Red Hots, and with water added, dried leaves and snickerdoodles. Big cinnamon spice on the finish ties this one up beautifully.

Vantage is a blend of straight bourbons finished in three distinct expressions of virgin oak: Mizunara, French, and toasted American oak casks. The result is a warm, elegant bourbon that highlights the many dimensions of oak.

The BCS team has drawn on years of experience with three-part barrel finishing, used previously in Armida, Dovetail, and Seagrass. With Vantage, those same techniques were applied to the oak itself, using different char levels, toast levels, and oak origins to create a multidimensional blend.

Each component whiskey in Vantage is finished separately, then systematically combined according to a blending process fueled in equal parts by a scientific approach, experience, creativity, and experimentation. This process focuses on the wood characteristics and the specific flavor contributions that each cask contributes to the blend. The result is a masterfully blended, perfectly balanced representation of the harmonious synergy between bourbon and barrel.

Selected Mizunara, French, and toasted American oak casks create multifaceted dimensions to this unique blend. The unique aspects of each wood and treatment are layered atop one another, precluding the singular taste of oak. The nose is creamy, spicy, and resinous, and the palate is richly textured and oily, soaked with barrel influence.

Bourbon

Bourbon, a quintessentially American whiskey, stands out for its meticulous production process and distinctive flavor profile. Crafted predominantly from a mash bill containing at least 51% corn, the spirit undergoes aging in new charred oak barrels, contributing to its amber hue and imparting a unique combination of sweet and robust notes. With a complex palate that often includes flavors of caramel, vanilla, and a subtle undertone of spice, bourbon has become an iconic and cherished spirit, embodying the rich traditions of American whiskey-making while offering a delightful experience for enthusiasts seeking a nuanced and flavorful libation. Whether sipped neat, on the rocks, or incorporated into classic cocktails, bourbon remains a symbol of craftsmanship and heritage in the world of spirits.
