Our Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskeys are offered as a Cask Strength release. We have the lowest entry proof we know of in Kentucky. We barrel at 100 proof to highlight the balance of the grains and alternate solubility expression from the barrel. Our three-grain recipe is 56 percent rye, 33 percent corn and 11 percent malted barley. Our rye mash bill is one we created for a broader balance of flavor to offset the typical high ryes commonly found. We use Kentucky-grown Heritage rye from our local KY Proud farm.
NOSE: Spearmint, Tobacco, Clove, and Undercurrent of syrupy sweetness.
TASTE: Oily, Sweet, and Blend of spices
FINISH: The only setback for this barrel proof rye is that the big spicy finish you hope for with a stellar rye doesn’t stick around long, but the tail of it sticks around awhile as it fades. This bottle is 3 years old and around 100 proof, while the newest releases are 4 years old and closer to 115. I am excited to try some of the higher proof bottles to see if the punch is more pronounced.
Bottle Size: 750mL
