Rusty Blade K&L Exclusive "Cask B" Single Barrel Cask Strength Barrel-Aged Gin 750ml (Previously $68)

SKU #1131269

Sometimes two barrels of gin are simply better than one, especially when two barrels of gin, made the same way and aged in the same warehouse, taste this differently from one another. We simply couldn't decide, so we bought them both. The only way to tell them apart is with the batch number (one says KL413A and the other KL413B), so we're referring to them as Cask A and Cask B. Our local distillery on the Peninsula, Old World Spirits, has once again brought the goods with these two single barrels of Rusty Blade. Cask B was obviously aged in more of a late-harvest zinfandel cask because the richness of the wine really takes hold, much like sherry does in a single malt whisky. The flavors are more Port-like and the finish is chewy with gumsmacking notes of plum and baking spices. Delicious, and a bit of a change from the normal Rusty Blade flavor profile.

Of the two single cask Rusty Blade offerings cask B was the more subtle one. There are juniper and baking spices but they a slightly more delicate and nuanced than cask A. Cask B , however, is the fuller bodied of the two.

Super nerdy Gin fans, this one's for you! Cinnamon, vanilla sweetness, with a funky saline-wet-sand-beach kelp thing happening. Richer mouthfeel than the "Cask A" for sure. A gin to stretch your intellect over a long afternoon!

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon.
