Single Barrel 216 – 2 years
The liquid in Barrel 216 is a bit of an anomaly, intersecting fresh green notes with baked fruit and spices. The nose welcomes you with many emotions, including green olives, vanilla, butterscotch, and sarsaparilla. On the palate, the journey continues with figs and softens into a peach creamsicle, which we all love because it’s peachy and creamy. The finish is strong, with nutmeg and dried cherries leading to a vibrant banana leaf note and the sensation that you have suddenly teleported to our jungle town, Morretes.
