For the 2019 batch we decided to swap out the Tennessee Whisky barrels for Rye Whisky barrels, blending the barrel aged brew with a second batch that had been held in stainless steel tanks. This Barley wine was brewed with New Zealand malt and Australian hops to produce a strong wort of 24 plato, which was then fermented over the course of two weeks before cellaring. The resulting beer is a luxurious blend of spicy rye whisky aromas, full vanillin mouth feel and a smooth finish.
