The demand for rye whiskey has exploded recently – we like to think it’s because people are starting to enjoy their Manhattan and Old Fashioned cocktails with vim and discernment. Whatever the case the distinctive peppery and spicy notes that rye grain imparts to American whiskey makes it a valuable addition to many a mash bill. This particular whiskey is made at Heaven Hill in Kentucky and Bottled Under Bond – which means that it is from a single distillery made in a single season in a single year. This gorgeous whiskey shows maple, toast, dried fruit and honeyed characteristics and is – dare we say it – a total bargain.
