What the brewers say

“English barleywine aged for 12 months in Blanton’s barrels.”

What our panel thought

“Caramel, toffee, honey, citrus aroma with only a hint of the rye barrel. The warming whiskey reveals itself when sipped along with treacle, caramel, toffee, and a complex malt profile.”

What our editors thought

“Direct and no-frills aroma with very subtle esters, almost altbier-like if it weren’t for the bourbon notes. Similarly punctual in the flavor, semisweet with focused upper midtone malt notes that exude precision.”
