Barrell Dovetail Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Sweet robust aromas of candied raisins and molasses are present along with a hint of anise. A touch of heat shows evidence of the proof. It’s intriguing and pleasant.
The sip opens with cane sugar, molasses, and dark cherries - a pleasing combination of sweet, rich flavors. A touch of barrel char along with toasted marshmallows also come into play, countering the sweeter notes. Mouth-coating and noticeably robust, yet not harsh, the palate is a well-developed layering of flavors that’s as satisfying as it is unique.
Peppery spice kicks in at first, along with a touch of heat. Sweet sugar and toasted marshmallows follow, along with an essence of dark fruit. Long and warming it leaves a delicious aftertaste inviting another sip.

Who makes dovetail bourbon?
To create the Barrell Dovetail Whiskey, the Barrell Craft Spirits folks took some 10-year-old whiskey from Indiana (no type specified), some 11-year-old bourbon from Tennessee (cough, George Dickel, cough), some cabernet barrels, some black strap rum casks and some port pipes
Dovetail is blended to highlight some of our favorite 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. Dovetail took almost a year to get right, from blending to labeling, all coming together in a seemingly perfect point..
Barrell Craft Spirits—the company behind the Barrell Bourbon, Barrell Whiskey, and Barrell Rum brands—has announced plans to build its own distillery in Louisville, Kentucky's Gilmore Industrial area, and naming Tripp Stimson as master distiller.
