BACKGROUND: Barrell Craft Spirits is a whiskey company that started in 2012. They source and blend all of their whiskey instead of distilling their own whiskey and they are very transparent about it. Barrell Craft Spirits continues to expand their offerings with bourbon, rye, and other types of whiskey including unique blends and finished whiskey. They gained an immense amount of fame from their batch 009 and most recently, their batch 21 earned double gold in 2020. One of their ongoing, limited-release projects is their Infinite barrel project which started in 2018. It was inspired by the idea of infinity bottle that many of us whiskey lovers have at home. An infinity bottle is created when a whiskey drinker pours a little bit from every bottle they get into one bottle or decanter creating a unique blend. Barrell Craft Spirits started this project in 2018 and they release a limited, unique batch one at a time. This was the third release from the infinite barrel project and was comprised of Tennessee whiskey, Tennessee rye, Indiana whiskey, 100% Polish malted rye, single malt scotch, single grain Scotch, Scotch whiskey, and Irish whiskey.
NOSE: Vanilla cream, smoky mint, and a scent that I could only compare to roasted walnuts are the first notes I pulled that were followed by dried fruit and citrus notes. (19/25)
PALATE: This whiskey has strong scotch flavors with dry notes of tobacco, cherries, honey, and some rye spice. There is a lot going on here and you could spend hours tasting this whiskey and pulling more and more notes. (30/40)
FINISH: The finish was medium and length and quite dry with strong notes of oak and some feint caramel notes beneath it. (20/25)
VALUE: Infinite Barrel Project has an SRP of $70 which is not bad for a unique, cask strength, one off barrel of whiskey. Each release will be different so keep that in mind! (7/10)
FINAL THOUGHTS: Barrel Craft Spirits has made some very tasty whiskey over the years and this one is a very unique one. This project has been a fun one to follow along with. Each bottle is so unique in its flavor profile. We recommend this specific dump date to anyone who enjoys scotch whiskey.
