Our most refined whiskey yet, Single Barrel Straight Rye was aged for 3 years in new charred oak barrels.
With this Whiskey, we continue our efforts to bring back a forgotten style of Rye Whiskey: Monongahela Rye. It was the gold standard of whiskey in the 1800s in America and is the big, rich, spicy cousin to every other rye whiskey. If made properly, a Monongahela Rye should be full of robust oak, caramel, and a distinctive black pepper finish that you feel up in your nose. What Scotch is to Scotland, and Bourbon (traditionally) is to Kentucky, Monongahela Rye is to Western Pennsylvania.
A Straight Whiskey needs to have a dominant grain in the mashbill (in this case, about 65% rye grain) and aged for a minimum of 2 years in a brand new barrel. Robust rye grain aroma, with notes of chestnut, caramel, and cedar. Middle notes of light vanilla. pepper, and apple. Mouthfeel is smooth, with a spicy pepper finish.
This is an especially great whiskey for rye & Scotch lovers, as well as adventurous bourbon drinkers. Many American whiskeys are “too sweet” for Scotch whiskey drinkers, but this rye should please a Scotch drinker’s palate.
