Rogue Oregon Rye Malt WhiskeyRogue Oregon Rye Malt Whiskey
Rogue Oregon Rye Malt Whiskey.
One of few malted rye whiskeys, the malting process in Rogue’s hand-crafted Oregon Rye Malt softens the spice notes typical of rye whiskeys and makes for a more approachable whiskey that builds in flavor. The barley in the mash bill (52% rye, 48% barley) further rounds out the taste and mouthfeel creating an easy sipping experience. Complex nuttiness is softened by light caramel and a hint of citrus leading to cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper.
BARREL: New American Oak Char 3
Ingredients: 2-Row, Munich & Rye Malt; Pacman Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.
Willett Straight Rye WhiskeyWillett Straight Rye Whiskey
Willett Straight Rye Whiskey. Willett Family Estate Bottled Straight Rye is aged in hand selected white oak barrels for 3 years after which it is hand bottled at cask strength. Distilled, and aged at Willett, this 3 year old straight rye whiskey is a mingling of two different mash bills. They combined a high rye mash bill (74% rye, 11% corn, 15% malted barley) with a lower rye (51% rye, 34% corn, 15% malted barley). A larger percentage of the high rye mash was used for this 3 year old expression. Non-chill filtered, and bottled at cask strength, this Rye has a surprising amount of depth considering the age. On the nose there is the smell the corn creeping up alongside big beautiful wintergreen, minty rye spice notes. The spices are a bit perfumey, in a good way. On the palate, this young rye explodes with flavour. The sweet corn notes are present, but thankfully the rye wintergreen, mint notes are able to steal the show. This is another great example of an excellent young rye.
