Columbus based Watershed Distillery has announced the September 18th release of their 2021 Watershed Barrel Strength Bourbon Batch 002. This batch has been aged aged four years in virgin char #4 White Oak barrels and finished for 34-45 months in Ohio apple brandy casks.
When selecting the barrels for this batch of our Barrel Strength Bourbon, our Barrel Master Anne Dimmick and I set out to highlight the true depth and complexity of the bourbon we make at Watershed Distillery. We are always looking for that 'magic' in a barrel—a rich and bold bourbon with balanced sweetness that truly stands apart from the rest, and we think Batch 002 captures that perfectly.
Nose: Dark brown sugar caramel, roasted oak and rich vanillaTaste: The palate brings with it a full-bodied rich viscosity, with complex notes of fig, peripheral spice, and a touch of black cherry and toasted nuttinessFinish: Robust and balanced with lingering complexity
