Analysis

The Old Tahoe Honey Rye utilizes their Straight Rye Whiskey as a base. It is extremely soft and sweet and will certainly appeal to those with a sweet tooth and those who find a pure Whiskey to be too much to handle.

How to Enjoy

This Honey Rye can be served over ice or perhaps its best use is in tea to make a quick and tasty hot toddy as the Whiskey and honey are already married.
