Overall: I had the opportunity to give this a try for the first time when I attended the Wisconsin Whiskey Fest last month. This was a bottle that had my attention right from the get-go with the finish alone. Well, the whiskey certainly followed through with the incredible finishing barrels. As soon as I returned home, I purchased a bottle.


Inviting upon first sniff, the dark chocolates and marshmallows danced across my senses. Crossing my fingers and hoping the palate followed the nose with those sweet sugary flavors, I was met by the sandwich portion of the s'more. Graham crackers and buttercream frosting created almost a dessert in a glass until the perfect spice shows up. A warm peppery rye spice helps to create a higher viscosity and warm tingle straight down the throat.


This is certainly one to check out if you've ever been on the fence about any Barrell product. The blending is exquisite and the finishes are spot on with my profile.
