*97 points, Ultimate Spirits Challenge Top 100 Spirits of 2020* Another great achievment in blending from Barrell. The Dovetail is a combination of 10 year old Indiana whiskey that has been finished in Dunn Vineyards Napa Cabernet barrels blended with 11 year old bourbon from Tennessee finished in black strap rum casks and LBV Port pipes. Producer note: "Opens with mature aromas both sweet (canelé, panna cotta, crème de noyaux) and savory (walnut oil, leather). This is followed quickly by a vast array of fruit derived both from the spirit (smoked apricot, grapefruit peel) as well as the cask treatment (sloe gin, damson jam). The aroma is high toned, pungently floral and herbaceous, with subtle, balancing pops of minerality. On the palate: Darker (cocoa, molasses, burnt marshmallow) and spicier (cola, nutmeg, Tellicherry peppercorn) than the nose, an effect well-complemented by the cask treatment and rendered more complex by the savory and herbaceous themes running throughout. The finish: A sweet and elegant signature of rose jelly, chestnut honey, and Pineau des Charantes that also features hazelnut, eucalyptus, and Corsican mint."
