In the Glass
Brilliant, deep amber/mahogany color.
The nose instantly reveals that this is not your typical Rye Whiskey. Beautiful scents of vanilla cream, red cherry, caramelized sugar, candied citrus zest, and hints of tropical fruits.
The palate fully concurs with the nose delivering a core with sweet grains soaked with ripe red fruits supported by caramel, oak, fruit cake, and spicy rye accents.
Intensity & Texture
Full-bodied and damn intriguing as the wine casks essentially turn this Whiskey into a ready-to-drink cocktail tasting like a well crafted Manhattan.
It has been confirmed that virtually all Whiskey lovers are enamored with American Rye Whiskey and the Whip Saw Rye is like no other as it features a rich vein of bright red fruits.
Selling at $50 a bottle this is not a bargain American Rye but once you reach the bottom of this bottle you will compelled to purchase another.
The Whip Saw Rye is made with Rye Whiskies aged up to seven years and then finished in wine seasoned French oak barrels. The mash bill is heavy with Rye at 76% with corn and malted barley. It is aged in traditional American white oak and then finished in red wine seasoned French oak barrels. The red fruits found in this Whiskey contributed by the wine barrels are unmistakable making this Whiskey a cocktail in the bottle. It's a wild version of a Manhattan cocktail in a bottle.
How to Enjoy
As we have pointed out, the Whip Saw Rye is nearly a Manhattan in a bottle so this needs nothing more than to be chilled and sipped. We do love this Rye is a classic Whiskey sour as the fruit plays foil to the citrus creating an unforgettable drink.
