    Product Description

    Barrell Seagrass Rye is a blend of American and Canadian rye whiskeys, with each ingredient meticulously sourced and finished separately in Martinique Rhum, Madeira & apricot brandy barrels. It highlights the grassy oceanside notes we love in rye and the luxury and spice of finishing barrels. Each release is blended to taste and bottled at true cask strength, resulting in subtle proof variations between blends.

    Barrell Seagrass is an ode to coastal memories, blended to evoke the joy of a day on the beach and an evening listening to the soothing rhythm of waves. Hot sun, brisk air, dry sand, and oceanside vegetation are considered. A ripe and inviting tropical nose and grassy, bright body evolve to a finish as long as the view down the shore on a clear day.

    A basket brimming with tropical and orchard fruits lies at the heart of this juicy whiskey, with prominent tones of ripe apricots from the brandy casks. A broad array of spicy and herbaceous rye aromas keep the tropical notes in check and are complemented by the delicate florals of grassy Martinique rhum. The oxidized Madeira notes emerge with a splash of water, candying the fruit and bringing out an earthiness on the palate.

    Tasting Notes

    Color: A pale tawny with straw highlights.

    Aroma: High concentrations of bright, fruity esters lend a perfume-like character to the aroma. Honeydew melon and plum sit alongside a slice of ripe apricot resting in the sun. A sea-like salinity, tarragon, and elderflower reveal the underlying rye.

    Palate: Sweet and juicy, Seagrass opens on pear, lychee, and white grapefruit. Classic rye flavors of cinnamon, rosemary, fennel seed, and rosehip aren’t far behind. Unctuous texture and sandy tannin are complemented by a delicate astringency typical to Canadian whiskeys.

    ​Finish: Fresh and clean, but the persistent tannin and astringency focus the powerful burst of camphor, chalk dust, and scorched earth.
