New Riff "K&L Exclusive Single Barrel #15-4911" Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1442194

America's most exciting disillery has just sent us our first two K&L selected single barrels and they're a doozy duo. Like everything New Riff releases, these whiskies meet the requirements for Bottled-In-Bond - the only difference with the single barrels is they're bottled at cask strength, not 100 proof. Both this barrel and barrel 15-4917 were distilled on 9/8/15 and bottled on 10/10/19, but they're remarkably different. This is in part due to New Riff's unique practice of keeping all of their fermenters seperate before distillation. While most distilleries empty their fermenters into a big beer well, blending them all togehter, New Riff is designed to take advantage of the individual flavors each fermenter can contribute. This is another key design feature from Larry Ebersold - The Mastermind and Master Distiller behind New Riff's layout. Barrel 4911 is charged with caramel, vanilla, allspice, and mature oak on the nose. Cherry and vanilla soda flit around the palate and the quality air dried American Oak makes itself known on the finish, peppery and spicy.

This single barrel from New Riff is expressive and concentrated. Full bodied, it is round and sweet with wonderful undertones of spice. The fun thing about these single barrel offerings is that they show how unique each barrel develops.For me the unique thing about barrel 15 4911 is the subtle spice and concentration, but there is also a hint of elegance .With water, caramel flavors become more pronounced.

Denser than 4917 - barrel 4911 is deep from the first nosing. Caramel, cocoa, and vanilla are the first to greet your senses. Lots of fragrant all spice and woody complexity carry through from start to finish. The middle is chockablock full of Luxardo cherries, cola, cinnamon. The finish shows off the sexy tannins of quality American oak - pepper spice and vanilla intertwined in glorious ways. For those in the know, New Riff offers some of the most compelling drinking in the country and there is a quickly growing cult following for their single barrels.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
