About single barrel bourbon
As the name suggests, single barrel bourbon comes from a single aging barrel, as opposed to other bourbon products produced by mixing bourbon from a variety of barrels to get more uniformity of taste. When you bottle bourbon from a single barrel at a time, it's harder to get the same taste from one bottle to the next. A great many factors come into play when determining the final taste of bourbon. The chemical processes are impacted by the degree of evaporation, maturation speed, and more.
When bourbon comes from just one barrel, it has the chance to develop a more distinctive flavor profile. Each batch can be unique, allowing you to enjoy smaller nuances of the bourbon. One barrel of bourbon will typically yield 200 bottles, but depending on factors like evaporation and proof, this number may be as low as 130 or as high as 220.
Bourbon lovers will often seek out bottles from a particularly appealing barrel, or bourbon buying clubs will purchase a whole barrel to divide among their members. Single barrel bourbons have a special rarity. The bourbon must meet exacting standards to be bottled at all. If the bourbon from a particular barrel is subpar, it is typically mixed with other barrels to produce a better product that no longer qualifies as single barrel.
