With this Whiskey, we continue our efforts to bring back a forgotten style of Rye Whiskey, Monongahela Rye. It was the gold standard of whiskey in the 1800s in America.
We age our Single Barrel Straight Rye a minimum of 4 years in new charred 53 gallon oak barrels. Bottled from a single barrel at 100 proof this Rye has the traditional rye flavors of dried tart cherries and stone fruit. These are complemented by deeper notes of caramel, chestnut, black tea and cedar, and rounded out with light vanilla, pepper, and apple. Mouthfeel is smooth, with a spicy pepper finish. What Scotch is to Scotland, this Monongahela Rye is to Western Pennsylvania.
Mash Bill: of 68% regional organic rye, 18% regional organic wheat and 14% organic malted barley.
Age: 4+ years
