I've been surprised by how many customers have told me they love Bourbon, but don't really appreciate rye whiskey because of the intense herbaceousness and peppery character of the rye itself, so I took it upon myself to find the sweetest, creamiest, and most Bourbon-like rye that I could get my hands on. This is rye whiskey for Bourbon drinkers.
If you like Graham cracker pie crust, cinnamon-dusted oatmeal, and other combinations of sweet baking spices on top of grain-based goodies, then this bottle is for you. Bottled at 47.5%, it's neither too hot, nor too soft. It's right where it needs to be: completely in balance with every facet working in utter harmony. The oak spices on the nose and on the finish are also charming. This won't be our fastest-selling barrel of the year by a long shot, but I'm positive it will be a fan favorite amongst those who appreciate good whiskey.
