“Barrel Strength is always one of our most popular releases because it provides our signature four grain blend straight from the barrel– uncut and unfiltered,” said Mike Paladini, Penelope Bourbon CEO and founder. “With this new batch, consumers can expect to experience our boldest flavor profile yet- with notes of smoke, orange peel, fruit, caramel, and oak.”

Barrel Strength Batch 05 is a 116-proof four grain straight bourbon blended from three bourbon mash bills aged 3 – 4 years in new American oak barrels and completely uncut and non-chill-filtered. The tasting experience starts with robust smoke and savory grain notes and finishes with a great balance of candied sweetness, smoke and savory grain. Barrel Strength Batch 05 is a limited run of 12,000 bottles.
