Only the best gets marked Barrel Proof.
When a distiller completes a batch of bourbon, and one barrel stands out as being especially good, that barrel gets bottled as-is and marked as ‘Barrel Proof’, signifying that the whiskey required no mixing or dilution to achieve the best possible flavor. Like a barrel aged bourbon that signifies the selection of the finest quality, Padilla’s newest Single Batch release utilizes hand selected, specially fermented tobaccos to ensure a richer, deeper flavor that perfectly captures the intent of the original blender.
The Barrel-Proof blend starts with ligero long-fillers sourced from Ometepe and Esteli in Nicaragua. These top-grade leaves are then secured within a Nicaraguan Corojo binder and draped in a toothy Mexican San Andres wrapper leaf, glistening with oils & bursting with flavor. Medium-full bodied, rich & hearty, but still smooth and just a little sweet, the Padilla Single-Batch Barrel Proof is sure to win a place in your humidor. But stock up fast, this is a highly limited-edition release and won’t be around long!
