Born in Indiana but taught to ride in Texas, where it was batched in the Blanco rickhouse and then finished in old Port wine casks direct from Portugal, this Whiskey has had quite an unusual upbringing. With warming tones of cinnamon and chocolate, balanced by rich dark fruits from the Port cask finish, there is a lot to love in the glass. The velvety palate shines as it shifts gears to offer some of the classic herbal rye character we expect from this mash bill.
Complex and enticing, this rich take on rye has a notably deep, ruddy hue, with toffee and red fruit aromas. The big, bold palate opens with dusty cocoa and mild cinnamon. Adding water brings out plush butterscotch and peanut brittle, finishing with a red fruit note and plenty of warming spice.
