Barrell Craft Spirits Seagrass Rye Cask Strength Limited and Rare Release Gray Label 16 year Whisky
BCS Gray Label Seagrass is born from 16-year-old Canadian Rye barrels, divided into two distinct profiles – one with citrus and green apple notes, the other with spearmint. Some from each group undergo unique finishes in Apricot Brandy, Martinique rhum, and Malmsey Madeira casks. The final blend marries these flavors when they peak during secondary maturation. This deeply mature rye whiskey boasts a classic grassy aroma with fresh Rhum Agricole notes. On the palate, the oily rye meets nutty madeira character and apricot brandy brightness, concluding with maritime minerality.
Appearance: Rich golden straw.
Nose: Rye spices, toast, and Rhum Agricole's grassy notes, with oak expressions of tobacco and coffee.
Palate: Extremely oily with peanut, coconut, and tea tree oils, evolving into creaminess with soy milk. Notes of lemonade and sunflower seeds nod to the madeira barrels.
Finish: Apricot brandy casks bring passionfruit and plum, while minerality combines with chalk dust, flint, paraffin, and cedar smoke.
