Barrell Craft Spirits Rolls Out Gray Label 16 Year Old Expression of Seagrass

Barrell Craft Spirits announced the released of BCS Gray Label 16 Yr Seagrass, the latest release in its Gray Label portfolio.

The original Barrell Seagrass, released last year, has been a success for the brand. This edition is rooted in the profile of Barrell Seagrass, but at a level only achievable with older and higher proof whiskeys.

The foundation of BCS Gray Label Seagrass starts with two groups of 16-year-old 100% Canadian rye barrels – one with bright citrus and crisp green apple notes and the other with earthy spearmint notes. A portion of the first group was finished in Apricot Brandy casks, a portion of the second group was finished in Martinique rhum barrels, and a blend of the first and second groups was finished in Malmsey Madeira barrels.

When each set of secondary maturation flavors peaked, those casks were pulled and slowly married into the final blend. It was ultimately bottled at 130.82 proof.
