Whiskey Barrel aged Barley Wines

Wheat Barleywine (for Stanley Kubrick) 12% ABV aged in a 100% wheat Catskills Distilling whiskey barrel and a Rye Barleywine (for JD Salinger) 12.5% ABV aged in a 100% rye Sagamore Spirits whiskey barrel.
The whiskey character is finessed and well integrated in both versions with oak and vanilla notes that take these barleywines to 11 without becoming booze bombs. 105565234_2644084575805583_3202299882394321249_n
