A blend of 2 exotic straight rye whiskeys—one old and one young—this spirit from Utah marries the rich aromatic qualities of a 16 year old rye with the bold and spicy properties of a 6 year old one. Full-flavored and complex, it can be enjoyed alone or mixed into rye cocktails, and it won a Gold medal at the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

"This is a sweet, smoky, spicy, flamboyant whiskey that is full, rich and intense, but not the least bit harsh."

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Product Details

The full nose of this Utah spirit shows cinnamon stick, clove, vanilla, peppermint and burnt sugar, freshened up with crisp apple. The palate is very spicy, with cinnamon, crisp mint and fennel, and underlying notes of caramel, molasses, vanilla, cocoa and candied fruit. The lingering finish takes hold with huge rye spiciness, cinnamon, mint and vanilla. It is a blend of two exotic straight rye whiskeys—one old and one young—that marries the rich aromatic qualities of a sixteen year old rye with the bold and spicy properties of a six year old one. Full-flavored and complex, it was named Best Rye Whiskey at the 2010 American Distilling Institute Craft Whiskey Competition. It’s great neat, with a little water or on the rocks, or in rye-based cocktails like the Manhattan, Sazerac or Old Fashioned.
