The Hard Truth Barrel Finish Reserve collection started with a selection of the highest quality wine barrels in the world. These were paired with custom blends of Hard Truth’s RW-1 Sweet Mash Rye, each designed to enhance the qualities of the barrels without sacrificing the complexity and richness of the whiskey itself.
Each barrel contributs unique flavor expressions that can’t be replicated, resulting in a perfect marrying of the spice, fruit, and complex mouthfeel of Hard Truth Sweet Mash Rye with a truly unique expression of the distillery or vineyard that these barrels came from.
We recommend trying each of these Barrel Finish Reserve whiskeys next to a bottle of Sweet Mash Rye to taste the incredible complexity brought out from these barrels and how they enhance the flavor in our whiskey.
