The Bourbon Barrel

The Bourbon Barrel Tawny

I have great memories of many years ago filling Tawny into used whiskey barrels imported in from the USA. As the Tawny went in, the wonderfully rich whiskey aromas filled the air. Bourbon must be aged in a brand new, charred white oak barrel, which means these barrels can only be used once. Apparently there are more bourbon barrels than people in Kentucky, the official home of Bourbon. We didn’t think they would miss any, so years ago we imported some used Bourbon barrels from Kentucky to Australia to age some of our own Tawny and now we can share the results with you. The Bourbon Barrel Tawny has the distinct flavours of the spirit originally aged in these charred barrels with the aged rancio characters of our Tawny. We trust you’ll enjoy it!
