The Barrell Private Release Series is a project in detailed blending on a scale small enough to allow extreme precision. The Private Release Series exercises blending expertise while maintaining a single barrel-like scale controlled entirely by hand and the palate. Every ounce of every ingredient changes the overall character of these blends, as does the barrel in which each one is aged. While the recipe for these releases may be replicated, the unique nature of each ingredient and the barrel they are married in makes every bottling singularly special.
From Brian Schmidt, Topflight Series Panel Member:
The Private Release line from Barrell Craft Spirits is the ultimate showcase of a brand that's quickly become one of the best blenders in the game. CQ01 is a blend of bourbon and rye whiskey from Kentucky and Indiana that's finished in a Pedro Ximenez Sherry barrel. PX Sherry has become a favorite finishing barrel of whiskey makers around the world as whiskey aficionados can't get enough of the amazingly smooth and sweet elements added by the fortified wine from Spain. This pour takes on those classic sherry elements on the nose and the palate, and you'd never know it's bottled at a cask strength proof of 120.94 on a blind taste. I love how this whiskey jumps from the glass, and I'd liken the nose to a Werther's Original when it sits in the glass for a little bit. Caramel, vanilla, and then a raisin-like sherry element underneath. On the palate, there's lots of dried fruit here, a subtle nuttiness that meets sweetness from the bourbon base, and a gentle rye spice into the finish. Just a well-balanced, PX-finished whiskey that all whiskey lovers can enjoy.
