Soft gold in color, this Rye bears aromas of light spices and pepper mixed with a slight fruitiness. The body is big and full and the palate shows a great balance of delicate rye qualities: spring flowers, nutmeg, cinnamon and deep, dark fruits. The finish is crisp and clean, with a burst of sweetness. This is a good example of a straight rye whiskey. Sip it from a shot glass, drink it on ice, and definitely try this one with ginger ale- they were made for one another!
***Bottled In Bond means that this bottle of bourbon follows federally regulated production methods. (Hooray for Government sanctioned booze!) That means the whiskey must be the product of one distillation season made by a single distillery. It also must be aged in a federally bonded warehouse under US government supervision for at least 4 years and must be bottled at 100 proof (50% alcohol by volume). And finally, the product's label must identify the distillery where it was made and bottled.
