American Whiskey ~ Rye
Produced at
Buffalo Trace Distillery

Gavin D.Smith

Fudge, Chantilly cream, summer fruits, ginger nuts.
Nice balance of velvety vanilla and more aggressive rye.
Relentless spiciness, a touch of chilli.
Another fine example of why rye has been undergoing a resurgence.

Rob Allanson

Big and bold. Plenty of fresh oak and coconut cream then comes some salted caramel, blackberry compote.
Gentle at first, with cornbread, then the dry spices build. Plenty of tannins and oak grip.
Drying and packed with oak grip.
Another excellent release of rye.
