Product Details

Gold to light amber in the glass, this Kentucky rye has expansive aromas of herbs and rye, with nuances of oak. The palate shows bold rye spiciness with undertones of vanilla and oak, while the finish is warm and smooth with spice throughout. Made with a blend of the finest quality ryes aged up to nine years to create an extraordinarily smooth yet spicy finish, the spirit is bottled at 100 proof. It won a Gold medal at the 2014 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition.

About the Producer
