Fishpaws Own Single Barrel Whiskies
What is a single barrel bourbon? When new whiskey goes into the barrel, it all starts life out pretty much equal. But once the barrel is tucked away in the rickhouse, it might age a little differently from the barrel three floors up or the one at the other end of the building. Where that barrel spends its aging years has a lot to do with the flavor characteristics of the whiskey as it matures inside. For a Single Barrel Bourbon, then, there is no "marrying. A Single Barrel Bourbon is a rare find, actually, because it - and it alone - contains all the qualities we seek in that particular product. It’s a one of a kind.
Fishpaws WhistlePig Old World Cask Finish Bespoke Blend
This 86 proof 12 year-old Rye Whiskey is a marriage of whiskeys aged in new American Oak and ingeniously finished in Sauternes (37%), Maderia (50%) and Port casks (13%). Fishpaws staff used a beaker and pipette to create an individual Bespoke Blend. We hope you will enjoy! Our customers loved this whiskey so much brought in a second batch.
The whiskey has a nose of caramel, baking spices and white pepper. The palate is creamy with distinct rye flavors, peach notes and a dark chocolate finish. It also contains flavors of caramel, burnt brown sugar and citrus notes. $119.99

Barrell Craft Spirits, based in Louisville, Kentucky, is an independent blender and bottler of unique, aged, cask strength sourced whiskey and rum, recognized for its blending expertise. Their goal is to select and blend products that explore different distillation methods, barrels and aging environments, and bottle them at cask strength. Every batch is produced as a limited release and has an intentionally distinct flavor profile.
Barrell Craft Spirits has been highly rated by Whisky Advocate, including Editor’s Choice, and was named Best American Whiskey of 2018 in Forbes by whiskey authority Fred Minnick. They have been awarded Best Bourbon twice at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC), once in 2017 and again in 2020. Other SFWSC awards include Best Small Batch Bourbon, Best Small Batch Bourbon over 11 years, Best Small Batch Bourbon 6-10 years and Best Overproof Rum, as well as nine Double Gold medals and seven Gold medals.
We couldn’t decide which barrel to pick so we bought them both. Now we have a contest to see which barrel choice our customers prefer! As you can see these will be labeled as 10 Year on the front because WhistlePig uses the 10 year bottling for all their barrel pick choices but these are rare older aged barrels which WhistePig pulled out as a COVID special.

• Nose – Super Sweet with lots of honey
• Palate – Honey, butter, vanilla, cinnamon
• Finish – Earthy notes, grassy and herbal notes
Barrel Pick “Girls Pick" Fishpaws Lady in Rye
• 112.7 Proof
• Barreled February 28th, 2003
• Although this barrel was higher proof, it had much more honey and vanilla than the guy’s pick. Was rounder; the guy's pick was leaner and more rye spice.
• Nose – Extremely aromatic with baking spices and sweet notes
• Palate – Very creamy with notes of honey, vanilla, dried fruit, Crème Brûlée and super soft and creamy. Drinks like a bourbon
• Finish – Long and lingering sweet notes
