Bourbon in its purest form. Penelope Barrel Strength pushes the boundaries of our signature four grain balanced flavor profile. Each batch is blended from three bourbon mash bills aged in new American oak barrels and completely uncut and non chill-filtered. Each barrel was hand selected and blended into a single batch in order to create this unique offering.
Aroma: Sweet caramel with a hints of maple syrup and candied sweetness.
Forward Notes: Smooth caramel syrup, brown sugar, subtle barrel char, and hints of butterscotch and crème brûlée.
Body: Sweetness transitions to notes of cinnamon, barrel char, and slight maple syrup.
Finish: Spicy cinnamon finish with amazing lingering spice and heat.
"Whereas Penelope's flagship straight bourbon aims at being light and approachable, their barrel strength brings a little more oomph. It's spicy and full-bodied, with vanilla up front that gives way to hazelnut and charred oak. A few drops of water brings out its fruitier notes, with hints of baked apple. This strong bourbon would stand up well to a large ice cube or a straightforward Manhattan." - Jacob Grier, Distiller
