Barrell Craft Spirits' Amburana Cask Finish: A Masterpiece of Blending and Innovation

A Journey Beyond the Ordinary

Barrell Craft Spirits' Amburana Cask Finish Straight Bourbon Whiskeys epitomizes the distillery's commitment to innovation and excellence. This extremely limited Cask Series special release is a testament to the intricate art of bourbon crafting, showcasing a unique finish in amburana wood casks that demands unparalleled blending expertise and creativity.

The Essence of Amburana: A Bold Experiment

The Amburana Cask Finish Series is born from the distillery's daring venture into the unknown. Amburana wood, known for its intense cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and vanilla flavors, presents a formidable challenge. The Barrell Craft Spirits team, led by Chief Whiskey Scientist Tripp Stimson, embarked on a year-long research and development journey to harness these potent spice notes without overshadowing the bourbon's intrinsic qualities.

Craftsmanship and Complexity: A Delicate Balance

Achieving the perfect harmony between the amburana wood's dominant characteristics and the bourbon's foundational flavors required a blend of straight bourbon whiskies from Indiana and Kentucky, varying in age from 5 to 10 years. This blend was then artfully finished in 53-gallon barrels crafted from sustainably harvested amburana wood, a process refined through meticulous adjustments to proof, temperature, and aging conditions.

Tasting Notes: A Symphony of Flavors

The flavor profile of the Amburana Cask Finish Bourbon is a vibrant tapestry of aromas and tastes:

  • Nose: Dominated by cinnamon and enriched by a spectrum of baking spices, the bouquet offers layers of chocolate, walnut, and toasted sourdough.
  • Palate: A rich, buttery texture reveals a spicy narrative of cinnamon and ginger beer intertwined with marmalade, tarragon, and hefeweizen, balanced by traditional bourbon notes.
  • Finish: Citrus peels and cider apple lead to a sweeter finish, with lasting notes of hefeweizen and dark Cuban rum.

Adding a splash of water unfolds additional dimensions, with sweetness and savory elements in a delicate balance, revealing botanicals and a salty streak on the finish.

Acclaim and Recognition: A Cut Above

The Amburana Cask Finish Bourbon has garnered praise from critics and connoisseurs alike, hailed as incomparable in its balance, and regarded as a pinnacle achievement among ambulance-finished bourbons. Celebrated across prestigious reviews, it is described as the best Amburana finish ever, a "fall time sipper," and the finest example of Barrell Craft Spirits' blending prowess.
