Break-even Bottle No 59 | Barrell Collection | The Cottage
Tuesday October 5, 2021
4:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Introducing progressive break-even bottles. These bottles are still exquisite and rare, outside of what you’ll typically see on menus and sold in 1 oz. pours for cost. And now come back the following week for another exceptional bottle from the same producer to compare tasting notes. (We’ll also open our library with special deals on tastings from bottles on our shelf from each week’s producer.) Tuesdays only, we open the bottle at 4p and sell 1 oz pours until it’s gone.
Reservations are highly recommended but not required.
Not one, but three great bottles!
Dovetail is blended to highlight some amazing flavors. Woody bourbon; terroir driven Dunn Cabernet; toasted French oak; Late Bottled Vintage Port pipes; black strap molasses casks; all working in tandem to create a buttery and deep whiskey as unique as it is delicious.
Seagrass highlights the grassy oceanside notes Barrell Bourbon loves in rye and the opulence and spice of finishing barrels. It is a blend of American and Canadian rye whiskeys, with each ingredient meticulously sourced and finished separately in Martinique Rhum Agricole casks, apricot brandy casks, and Madeira barrels.
Armida is a blend of three Straight Bourbon Whiskeys finished separately in Pear Brandy, Jamaican Rum, and Sicilian Amaro Casks. The ripe, floral pear notes provide a soft entrance into a whiskey that is adorned with hints of spice and arid citrus derived from the Amaro casks (and also the toasty bourbon itself). This mélange of flavor is framed by the tropical sweetness found in rum finished whiskeys. Armida is a journey for the palate: from a brisk northern orchard to an ancient island, it ends up exactly where we intended, with an immensely complex and satisfying whiskey.
