Description

Penelope’s Toasted Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon S1B12 is a bourbon enthusiast’s dream, offering a unique twist on their signature flavor profile. This limited-edition release starts with a blend of three undisclosed mash bills, each bringing its own subtle character to the table. After an initial slumber in charred new American oak barrels, the bourbon gets an extra kick with a toasted barrel finish. This toasting process introduces new elements to the flavor profile, most notably deep notes of vanilla.

Imagine swirling the S1B12 in your glass and releasing a burst of aroma that mingles classic Penelope notes of rye spice and hints of fruit with a touch of toasted marshmallow sweetness. On the palate, the cask strength bottling delivers a powerful punch, but reviews suggest it’s surprisingly smooth for its higher proof. Expect the vanilla from the toasted barrel to be prominent, mingling with the rye spice and creating a complex interplay. Hints of other fruits like cherry or stone fruit might peek through, depending on the specific batch. The finish is described as lingering, leaving a pleasant warmth and a lasting impression of the toasted influence.

A Word on Batch Variations: It’s important to note that Penelope uses different char and toast levels for each batch. This means the specific flavor profile can vary slightly from bottle to bottle. Some batches might be more rye-forward, while others might showcase the toasted vanilla more prominently. This adds an element of surprise and keeps things interesting for bourbon aficionados who enjoy exploring subtle variations.

Overall, the Penelope Toasted Barrel Cask Strength Bourbon S1B12 is a unique and exciting expression for bourbon lovers seeking a new adventure. With its cask strength bottling, toasted barrel finish, and potential for slight variations, it offers a complex and rewarding drinking experience.
