Broken Barrel has partnered up with Owensboro native, Whiskey enthusiast and founder of Instagram's Coming Whiskey (the whiskey 'crystal ball') Jacob Kiper for a unique micro release of 50 bottles of Kentucky Straight Rye. Offered from a single barrel, and double finished for nearly a year in a 15-gallon new charred oak barrel... let's explain further:
Imagine this - our flagship (5x) 93-point winning Heresy Rye, finished with French Oak, Ex-Bourbon barrel staves, and Sherry cask staves, nicely finished with these broken barrels for months..... Now take the Rye whiskey, filter it and toss it BACK into a 15-gallon mini-barrel for another 11-months. That's right, we re-barreled these bastards and split a 53gal rye into four 15 gallon barrels after it was dumped and finished.
The result is an Online Exclusive, not in distribution or available ANYWHERE ELSE except this site, from us direct at Broken Barrel Whiskey. A rich and flavorful 107-proof single barrel selected by Coming Whiskey that is welcoming and woody, with hints of sweet sherry and a touch of caramel and walnut on the finish. Not your typical rye, we certainly should have called this sucker a 'double oak', so don't let the 'Little" fool you - smaller barrel means MORE wood and these ryes bring home the oak!
Oak Bill: 50% 15 Gallon New Char #4 | 40% Ex-Bourbon/French Oak | 10% Sherry Cask Staves
