A highly exclusive, limited run spirit that boasts very unique characteristics of our distillery. Crafted using 90% Rye and aged 9 years in a combination of new American oak and a retired wine oak cask hand selected by our Master Distiller. This wine cask last held a 2009 Cab Franc which provides an added layer of spice complexity to create a delectable smooth yet bold spicy spirit.
Our 9 year Rye Whiskey is hitting the shelves today! Priced at $72. 65 (spirit was aged in a 2007 year barrel and there are 265 bottles in this batch.) This is a very limited batch and will be our only 9 year rye whiskey until at least 2028.
On the nose- A hint of brown sugar and cedar followed by bold spicy notes of rye.
Pallet- Initially on the pallet a smooth blend of malt, molasses, and slight peat notes. This is followed by long lasting bold spicy notes of rye and slight notes of black pepper.
Cask- Aged for 2 years in a new medium charred American Oak barrel, then transferred to a retired 2007 American oak wine cask. This cask last held a 2009 Cab Franc and prior to that a 2008 Merlot. The spicy notes of the Cab Franc and mellow notes from the Merlot are picked up on the pallet adding another layer of complexity.
