Barrell Dovetail bourbon is a blend of cabernet, port, and rum finished bourbons from Indiana (MGP) and Tennessee (Dickel). Dovetail is currently one of few, if not the only consistently released product (albeit in un-numbered batches with different ABVs) while Barrell keeps releasing newly numbered (and limited) batched bourbons, ryes, and other various experiments. This particular bottle at 61.9% ABV was released in February 2019, hence why the label looks different from more recent releases.
I’m a massive fan of finished whiskeys, and this particular blend of 3 different finishes seems cool, so I’m already interested. In this Barrell Dovetail Bourbon review, let’s find out if Barrell finished and blended this to perfection.
Thanks to Ryan S. for the sample.
