In the Glass

Appearance

Brilliant, deep amber with hints of burgundy.

Aromatics

The nose is unmistakably rye with loads of brown baking spices delivered at near parity and hints of vanilla bean.

Flavor

The palate echoes the nose delivering a round, slightly viscous sweet grain core with loads of baking spices and the vanilla found on the nose taking a bigger role while it mingles with caramel.

Intensity & Texture

Full-bodied with a prominent sense of alcohol due to the over-proof bottling strength.

Cool Factor

A

We love a tasty craft Rye Whiskey and this one has enough unique flavors to warrant its addition to your bar.

Value Grade

C+

Rye Whiskey is rarely cheap these days and the craft distillers never give away this precious commodity so we are not feeling much sticker shock.

Analysis

The wash, aka beer, of this Whiskey was made at local breweries before being distilled at RE:FIND. Then it was aged in small barrels for an undisclosed period of time. It is bottled at 45% abv. The wood is certainly very evident showing loads of brown baking spices and sweet vanilla while the rich, spicy Rye is still defined. The spirit is very intriguing and we would have loved to see this aged in a full barrel for four years.

How to Enjoy

Sip neat with a generous splash of water to tame the higher proof while also allowing the flavor to fully blossom.
