Big Bottom continues the tradition of finishing our spirits in wine casks by introducing Barlow Trail, Port Cask Finish. We use our proprietary American blended whiskey as the base whiskey and finish it in a 10 year Tawny Port barrel for about 6 months. It presents a bright, sweet berry and citrus nose. On the palate, it showcases a fresh, ripe berry followed by a small hint of peppery spice that gives way to a very smooth, rich and malty quality from the French Oak Port casks. Barlow Trail, Port Finished Blended Whiskey won a Gold Medal at the 2015 Great American Spirits Festival and a Silver Medal at the 2015 American Craft Spirits Association (ACSA)Awards. It also came in First Place for 2015 Best of the NW: Sip NW Spirits Competition for Best Whiskey.
